Survivorship Bias

Originally posted on e-Learning Stuff.

In my recent blog post I reflected on the wealth of news articles about highly successful people who failed their A Levels, or how everyone can be a millionaire I was reminded of this great XKCD cartoon. Every inspirational speech by someone successful should have to start with a disclaimer about survivorship bias. Survivorship bias or survival … Continue reading Survivorship Bias Read more

Yesterday was A Level results day, for over 800,000 students they got a letter explaining the outcome for most of two years studying.

Over the last few months I have been talking about things I have written about on this blog before.

Originally posted on e-Learning Stuff.

So why do we feel the need to fill the space with signs and notices. At my local library/community space, I noticed how cluttered the new café area was with notices and signs.
