The question of how much of the building part of statistics to include is something that should be thought about more. I have seen courses that removed it pretty much completely, and it leaves students with little comprehension about what they are doing. Alternatively put it all in, and they don't gain enough feel for analysis. I am trying to just deal with the important concepts, and especially important, relate what is happening in the analysis to those concepts.
