July marks the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. We hope to encourage persons with disabilities to become statisticians and fully participate in the ASA. In July, we also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS).
Keith Crank, the ASA’s research and graduate education manager, discusses the April 2010 report The Path Forward: The Future of Graduate Education in the United States from the Educational Testing Service and Council of Graduate Schools.
Amstat News is the monthly membership magazine of the American Statistical Association, bringing you news and notices of the ASA, its chapters, its sections, and its members. Other departments in the magazine include announcements and news of upcoming meetings, continuing education courses, and statistics awards.
