Recent research in the area of probability has explored the development of
probabilistic thinking of students from primary to post-secondary. However, most of the
research has been undertaken in the West, and there has been no research on students in
China, where probability is not introduced until Grade 12 (a very different situation from that
in the West). This paper presents an analysis of twenty-four questionnaire items designed to
focus on students' understanding of certain, impossible, and possible events. Students'
misconceptions are identified and discussed. The analysis reported here is part of a larger
study of Chinese students' understanding of probability.
