Abstract: The aim of this paper is to assess the levels of statistical literacy and perception of Early Teaching Training (ITE) students and teachers working in the Chilean schooling system. Two measuring tools were applied: (1) statistical literacy and (2) perception, both validated statistically. The results of this analysis show that, in general, ITE students and working teachers present low achievement percentage on decoding textual situations, delivering unlikely arguments with little basis on basic statistical concepts.
