Inferential Statistics in Psychology


This event is being run in partnership with the Association for the Teaching of Psychology, as part of the ‘Maths in Psychology’ project, with support from the Department for Education.   

This free, online session is for Psychology teachers who wish to build their confidence in teaching inferential statistics. There will be a focus on understanding and interpreting parametric and non-parametric tests. During this session, we will model approaches to teaching these topics and share ideas on how to engage your students in meaningful discussions about data in Psychology and how similar discussions may occur in a Core Maths classroom.


  • Develop confidence in teaching interential statistics in Psychology
  • Understand how studying Core Maths will support students with the mathematical components of Psychology
  • Network and share ideas with fellow teachers

Who will benefit from attending?

This session is aimed at teachers of Psychology who would like to increase their confidence in teaching inferential statistics. No previous knowledge is expected.

Materials and Equipment

We aim to emulate as much of the ‘face-to-face’ experience as possible and give delegates opportunities to discuss ideas with each other in breakout rooms. Participants should expect to be proactive in communicating during sessions, so we strongly encourage the use of microphones and webcams

Other Information

These events will be run in Zoom. Teachers who sign up will be emailed in the days prior to the session and again on the day of the session with a link to register for the meeting in order to receive a link to the Zoom room.

There will be a course on Descriptive Statistics in Psychology on 20th March which may also be of interest. 


Due to the way we are funded, priority will be given to teachers from state-funded schools and colleges in England and trainee Psychology teachers. Teachers from other institutions are very welcome to apply and will be accepted if we have capacity.


This session is free to attend.
