This presentation will advocate for Statistics Education that is Personalized, Engaging, and Assessed in an environment that promotes Success, Opportunity, Usefulness, and Practice.

To effectively reach all learners we must provide a way to personalize each teacher's pedagogical options and each student's educational experience. Research also supports the value of making classroom activities engaging (and perhaps fun) for the students, and assuring that assessments provide both feedback to the student and a measure of the effectiveness of the instructional methods.  My happy conclusion is that these kinds of improvements nationwide are within reach: support for statistics education has never been higher; resources have never been more abundant; a national infrastructure is forming; and the technology required for personalization is now ubiquitous.
