Let's say we randomly select 9 men and 9 women and ask their GPAs and get these data:

MEN 0.90 2.00 1.40 2.00 3.00 2.00 3.00 4.00 3.70 WOMEN 1.50 MEAN GPA FOR: 3.00 3.00 2.44 MEN: _____ 2.50 3.00 2.78 WOMEN:______ 3.00 4.00 Can we conclude that the average GPA of ALL women at Skyline is 3.00 higher than the average of ALL men? 2.00

Standard Deviation

The standard deviation is a measure the degree each data point in the set of data points varies (or deviates) from the mean The wider the spread of scores, the larger the standard deviation.

Standard Deviation

For data that has a normal distribution, 68% of the data lies within one standard deviation of the mean.

One SD

2.44 MEN: _____

2.78 WOMEN:______

MEN WOMEN

-1.54 -0.44 -1.04 -0.44 0.56 -0.44 0.56 1.56 1.26

1.50 2.78 =

3.00 2.78 = 3.00 2.78 = 2.50 2.78 = 3.00 2.78 = 3.00 2.78 = 4.00 2.78 =

0.90 2.44 =

2.00 2.44 = 1.40 2.44 = 2.00 2.44 = 3.00 2.44 = 2.00 2.44 = 3.00 2.44 =

4.00 2.44 =

3.70 2.44 =

3.00 2.78 =

2.00 2.78 =

MEN (-1.54)2 = (-0.44)2 = (-1.04)2 = (-0.44)2 = (0.56)2 = (-0.44)2 = (0.56)2 = (1.56)2 = (1.26)2 =

WOMEN (-1.28)2 = 1.64 (0.22)2 = 0.05 (0.22)2 = 0.05 (-0.28)2 = 0.08 (0.22)2 = 0.05 (0.22)2 = 0.05 (1.22)2 = 1.49 (0.22)2 = 0.05 (-0.78)2 = 0.61

4. Add the values from the previous step together to get (X-M)2 MEN WOMEN

2.37 0.19 1.08 0.19 0.31 0.19 0.31 2.43 1.59 8.68 1.64 0.05 0.05 0.08 0.05 0.05 1.49 0.05 0.61 4.06

5. Calculate (n-1) by subtracting 1 from your sample size. Your sample size is the total number of data points you collected.

N-1 for men = 9-1 = 8 N-1 for women = 9-1 = 8

6. Divide the answer from (X-M)2 by the answer from (n-1) to find (X-M)2 n-1

Men 8.68 / 8 = 1.09 Women 4.06 / 8 = 0.51

7. Calculate the square root of your previous answer to determine the standard deviation

Men 1.09 = 1.04

In men, 68% of all students sampled have a GPA that falls within 1.04 grade points of the mean.

MEAN PLUS 1.04 = 3.49 MEAN MINUS 1.04 = 1.40

68% of men have a GPA between these values

In women, 68% of all students sampled have a GPA that falls within 0.71 grade points of the mean.

MEAN PLUS 0.71 = 3.49 MEAN MINUS 0.71 = 2.07

68% of women have a GPA between these values

Graph results to find out:

Mean GPA of Men and Women at Skyline

4.00 3.50 3.00 2.50 2.00 1.50 1.00 0.50 0.00 MEN Gender

+ / - 1 SD

GPA

MEAN GPA

WOMEN

Graph results to find out:bars overlap, Since the SD we conclude that the at Skyline Mean GPA of Men and Women GPAs are probably 4.00 NOT significantly different, 3.50 and that the difference in 3.00 2.50 the means is most likely 2.00 due to chance in the 1.50 1.00 sampling population.

GPA

0.50 0.00 MEN Gender WOMEN

Since the SD bars DO NOT overlap, we conclude that the populations are probably significantly different, and that the difference in the means is most likely due to something MORE THAN CHANCE.
