The purpose of this study was to examine the expected differences in Greek primary school students and their immigrants’ classmates’ expectations of success in statistics. In particular, the research hypothesis was that there would be a statistically significant difference between expectations of success in statistics of sixth grade students, with Greek students expecting to be much more successful than the immigrants’ students. A sample of 161 Greek students and 157 immigrants took part in the study and filled in a statistics expectancy questionnaire. The results of the implicative statistical analysis indicated that there was no statistical significance in support of the hypothesis.
