TeresaMany graduates of St. Scholastica’s Academy Marikina are complaining that theyhave no statistics as a subject especially those who really need a background of thesubject in some units of their courses. Other incoming graduates find it hard to have nostatistics whenever they take entrance exams in different colleges and universities butstill, some find statistics to be insignificant to a high school student, that it will notchange a thing for their college life.According to HyperStat Online:“One important use of descriptive statistics is to summarize a collection of data ina clear and understandable way. For example, assume a psychologist gave a personality test measuring shyness to all 25,000 students attending a smallcollege. How might these measurements be summarized?”Also, according to Online Statistics, statistics can be applied in daily life.“Partly… bombard you everyday. If you cannot distinguish good from faultyreasoning, then you are vulnerable to manipulation and to decisions that are not inyour best interest. Statistics provides tools that you need in order to reactintelligently to information you hear or read.”In this sense, statistics is one of the most important things that you can study.In this regard, we can say statistics is an important and beneficial subject for someto study that is why we have decided to conduct a study about the perceptions of the freshgraduates of SSAM as well as the incoming fourth year next year.
