    I am about to do my green belt exam, and part of the exam is a teachback to the class. My subject is basic statistics. Are there any tips out there for what I should include in the teachback and how I should present it?
    Thank you for any help

    Generally, a “teach back” means they want you to “teach back” what you have learned.  Make a few flip charts of the what was covered in your class.  Since we don’t have the curriculum in front of us we don’t know what you learned in class.  As a general rule, under the heading of basic statistics, you should have learned the different types of data (continuous and discrete), the measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode), the measures of variation (range, s.d., variance) and probably something about the shape of the data (histograms).  You should have also covered something about the normal distribution.  If so, this is what you should present in a teachback.  Use a few bullet points and some graphs to illustrate your discussion.

    I have just found out that the things I should cover in my teachback are the normal distribution curve, explain the mean as opposed to median, explain the 68.95%, 95%, 99,73% rule and explain why we use sampling. I understand all of the above but just have no idea how to explain what basic statistics are to the class and then string all of the info together. My problem is I have absolutley no experience of public speaking at all whereas all the rest of the class have.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Have five or six shots of Herradura Darth before speaking and you’ll be fine.

    Teachback as you would like it to be presented to you.  Practice on someone at home.  Make eye contact, speak slowly, vary your voice so it is interesting, don’t thrown up on them from nervousness, don’t fart when talking, make sure your fly is closed if a male.  You do public speaking everyday unless you belong to a religious sect that practices the vow of silence.  Relax, have fun, realize you can’t fail regardless of how you do and go last so you can see what others are doing.

    There is nothing wrong with farting when talking. Ignore Darth’s advice!

    Hey, at least walk behind the flipchart if you are going to do that!!!!!  Stan, the fly issue is strictly a male issue.  The female issue is generally linked to a low temperature in the room.  In that case, a thicker blouse fabric often offsets the problem.  While some may think our discussion to be profane and unprofessional, rest assured that if you have trained as long as I have, these and many other embarrassing moments are real.  One of my old time favorites was in the days of overhead projectors and transparency sheets.  Nothing more embarrassing than a sudden sneeze and the subsequent decoration on the transparency.  All of that prominently displayed on an 8 foot screen for the whole class to enjoy.  The most embarassing male problem is the visible “spot” on the front of light slacks after a bathroom visit.  All of these are true and should elicit a chuckle from old time trainers.  Are there any that I forgot?
