Nominations Invited for Causality in Statistics Education Award

31 March 2014 38 views No Comment

The Causality in Statistics Education Award is aimed at encouraging the teaching of basic causal inference in introductory statistics courses. Donated by Judea Pearl, the prize is motivated by the growing importance of introducing core elements of causal inference into undergraduate and lower-division graduate classes in statistics.

A gift from Microsoft Research will enable the prize to double in 2014, so there will be one $10,000 prize or two $5,000 prizes. For additional information, see last year’s Amstat News article about the award.

Nominations and questions should be sent to the ASA office at educinfo@amstat.org. The nomination deadline is April 15.
