Sample text

We could have two nearly identical samples except for one score, which can alter the mode. For example, in distribution (a) if a second similar sample contains the same scores except that an 8 is replaced with a 7, then the mode is changed from 8 to 7. Thus changing a single score can change the mode, and this is considered to be a disadvantage. A fifth and final characteristic is the mode can be used with any type of measurement scale, from nominal to ratio. The Median A second measure of central tendency represents a concept that you are already familiar with.

S ummati on Central tendency Outliers Dispersion Exclusive versus inclusive range Deviation scores Bias UNIVARIATE POPULATION PARAMETERS 39 In the second chapter we began our discussion of descriptive statistics, previously defined as techniques that allow us to tabulate, summarize, and depict a collection of data in an abbreviated fashion. There we considered various methods for representing data for purposes of communicating something to the reader or audience. In particular we were concerned with ways of representing data in an abbreviated fashion through both tables and figures.

5 as its lower real limit. This implies that any possible score that occurs can be placed into some interval and no score can fall between two intervals. 25, that will be covered in the 18 interval. 5)? There are two possible solutions. The first solution is to assign the score to one interval or another based on some rule. For instance, we could randomly assign such scores to one interval or the other by flipping a coin. Alternatively, we could arbitrarily assign such scores always into either the higher or lower of the two intervals.
