is computed by adding up the number of points earned by all students on the item, and dividing that total by the number of students. The "median" is the "middle" value in the list of numbers. To find the median, your numbers have to be listed in numerical order, so you may have to rewrite your list first. The "mode" is the value that occurs most often. If no number is repeated, then there is no mode for the list. The "range" is just the difference between the largest and smallest values.

Find the mean, median, mode, and range for the following list of values: 13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13 The mean is the usual average, so: (13 + 18 + 13 + 14 + 13 + 16 + 14 + 21 + 13) 9 = 15 Note that the mean isn't a value from the original list. This is a common result. You should not assume that your mean will be one of your original numbers. The median is the middle value, so I'll have to rewrite the list in order: 13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 16, 18, 21 There are nine numbers in the list, so the middle one will be the (9 + 1) 2 = 10 2 = 5th number: 13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 16, 18, 21 So the median is 14. The mode is the number that is repeated more often than any other, so 13 is the mode. The largest value in the list is 21, and the smallest is 13, so the range is 21 13 = 8

Standard Deviation a measure of the variability, or

spread, of a set of scores around the mean Intuitively, the sum of the differences between each score and the mean (known as deviation scores) appears to be a good approach for measuring variability around the mean

SD

Symbolically, we can write this as

X M

Lets use the scores 1, 2, 6, 6, and 15, where

M 6

SD

Now lets calculate the sum of the deviation

scores:

X M

= (1-6) + (2-6) + (6-6) + (6-6) + (15-6) = (-5) + (-4) + (0) + (0) + (9) = = -9 + 9 = 0

SD

We can avoid this problem (deviation scores sum to 0) by

squaring each deviation score before summing them This would be written symbolically as

X M

SD

We then divide this value by n-1 to arrive at the mean

squared deviation

122/4 = 30.5 We then take the square root of this value to bring the units back to the raw score units

30 .5 5.52
