With SALT, turn your students into statistical thinkers

Do your students struggle with data meaning? Do they find it difficult to understand complex calculations and data analysis tools?
You are not the only one! We hear statistics instructors often say that their greatest challenge is making students statistical thinkers.
This tool, the Statistical Analysis and Learning Tool (SALT), will help students learn in an easy-to use tool. SALT will be available for free outside WebAssign and integrated into WebAssign courses*.

*SALT is only available for the most recent editions of the titles listed below. If you want to use salt, make sure to upgrade your title.

SALT was designed by Statisticians for Statisticians

After years of collaboration with statistic educators and in-class testing from instructors and students, SALT will now be integrated into WebAssign.

Access effortlessly
Clicking a link will automatically import data sets from WebAssign questions into SALT, which students can manipulate.
To make it easy for instructors to access SALT from a separate website, apart from WebAssign, they can do so via a standalone URL.
Students can access SALT from a separate website after their course is over.
Fuel Student Learning
Students can intuitively manipulate and visualize data using dynamic graphics and a modern interface that has easy-to-use controls. Students will be able to understand graphing, descriptive statistics and regression better.
Students will be engaged by interesting and relevant data sets that help them understand how Statistics is applied in real life. Remember that you can also create your own data sets!
