ABSTRACT
This paper discusses attempts to utilize results from the departmental final exam for an elementary statistics course to understand how well the students are performing in the course as well as comparing 6 instructors. Over the course of three semesters, final exam results from 884 students are used in the analysis. Contingency tables are used to understand the relationship between pairs of variables. Correspondence analysis is used as a descriptive method to graphically understand the relationships among all variables of interest. Multiple tests of independence, as well as tests comparing proportions, are used to further verify the findings from correspondence analysis. As a result, many relationships among instructors, topics, and student classification are found to be highly significant.
