This post is about a prediction model I’m working on that aims to predict the gender of a teacher based on a few questions.

On World Statistics Day, I posted about a survey for high school teachers. Thanks to all the teachers who completed the survey! There is not quite enough data to share yet but I have used the data to make a start on a prediction model.

The plan is that, after asking you some questions, I can use your answers to predict your gender. Share with your teacher friends and let them be impressed with statistics too!

Once I get more data, I will “share the secrets” including the data so you can use this context for some exploratory data analysis of your own with your students.

Ready to be impressed (hopefully)?

Head here to try out the teacher gender predictor!

Anna teaches introductory-level statistics at the University of Auckland. She enjoys facilitating workshops to support professional development of statistics teachers and thinks teaching statistics (and mathematics) is awesome. Anna is also undertaking a PhD in statistics and data science education.

Magical powers? Nah just statistics!
