Student Debt Is Dragging A Whole Generation Down
“I am so far in debt that will never go away,” she told me, “and all those things people do in life — marriage, travel, homes, a career, not living with your elderly mom who you don’t get along with in a one-bedroom apartment, not being scared all the time — will never come my way. I miss insurance. I have been to the dentist once in 15 years. I’m pretty sure that if I ever get diagnosed with cancer, I’ll just let it take me. What could I do? I couldn’t afford to fight it.”

MODELING AS A CORE COMPONENT OF STRUCTURING DATA - Konold, Finzer, Kreetong (2017)
We then gave participants a blank sheet of paper on which they were to record the data and told them their “data sheet should not be a drawing of these snapshots. It should be an organized record of the data values on the snapshots.” We also told them that we might later give them more snapshots and have them add data from those to their data sheet. The mention of this possibility was intended to encourage the development of an organization that could readily accommodate additional data.

...

The students’ task was to enter data into Tabletop's case table that would allow them to recreate the target display. Tabletop's case table was a conventional row-by-column structure as we have described. Thus the solution was to create a table with two columns, one labeled Name and the other Gender, and then enter each child’s values into one of the seven rows. Most of the students created two columns, but these were labeled Boys and Girls. They then entered the students’ names under the appropriate label resulting in four rows. This structure would not allow them to recreate the target display because Tabletop interpreted the rows as cases, which generally held the name of one boy and one girl. It took hints and considerable guidance before students could figure out and correct the problem, and even with this assistance, a few students were unable to find a solution.

...

Nearly the only narrative part of this data sheet is the word “behind.” In the first line, the student uses a rather long phrase to make it known that the identity of the vehicle ahead of the truck is unknown. It may have been these complexities, which the student believed needed to be preserved, that led to the use of a narrative rather than a table.
Thus one hypothesis about why many students used narratives rather than tables in this study is that they could not see how to maintain some of the necessary information in other than narrative form. In terms of modeling, they believed critical information would be lost if they used a table.
