Abstract: Statistical consulting projects with researchers in the College of Nursing at Villanova have provided a pool of datasets that can be shared with students in a required statistics course for undergraduate Nursing majors.

Since the datasets tend to be large and unwieldly, we have installed them in a Web archive that allows students to select subsets of variables and observations that can be analyzed using tools learned in a first statistics course.

We will summarize the pedagogical issues involved in the use of the data archive, and review experiences we have had in our courses that use the archive.
