Statistics ProjectTesting:
Typing Speed from A-Z
Comparing:
Boys and Girls
People:
25 boys and 25 girls
Tool:

Introduction to Project:
This Statistics Project was a research project. I decided to test the typing speedfrom A-Z by using an online website. I would be testing 25 boys and 25 girls, find
the average of each person’s time and then compare the times between boys and
girls to see if there is a relationship. If there is then I would have something toconclude but if there is no pattern or relationship seen then that would tell mesomething different.
Hypothesis:
I think girls would have a faster typing speed from A-Z than boys. It is true boystake more pride in saying they are fast at typing, but the daily activities of bothgenders can prove that they are not as fast. Both genders play sports so that wouldnot differentiate any information. Boys play games which require the use of themouse. Girls like going on the social network which require typing and the amountof time they spend on the social network is as high boys spend with gaming.
ATLs:
To do this project, we needed to have everything well organized as it had a deadline.We needed to be able to communicate properly with the people taking the survey.Communication was a very important area because they needed to know what they were doing and I needed to make sure there are no flaws in the survey. Anotherarea of the ATLs was that we needed to be open minded towards the others doingthe survey as people are different and some might find it more difficult than othersso I cannot rush them
Process of Collecting Data:
First I tried to collect data from 8D. We needed 25 boys and 25 girls. I would thengo to other classes to collect their time. I needed to collect times in my own time inhomeroom also. This is a sample of year 8.After collecting the data the results are then put into the tables below.
