Chapter 5 Performance Assessment

The table shows the number of absences in Mr. Aydin’s class for the last 20 days. Mr. Aydin’s class has 22 students. 1. Make a line plot of the data.

2. Use the line plot to find the mean, median, mode, and range of the data.

3. Suppose 10 students were absent the last day of the data. How would that change the mean from what you found in Exercise 2? The median? The mode(s)? The range?

4. Find the number of students present each day. Make a stem-and-leaf plot of the data.

5. Jeb wrote each number of absences from the table at the top of the page on a different slip of paper, put the slips of paper in a bag, and drew one without looking. Find P(1) and P(5). Write each probability as a fraction.

Teacher Notes

Concepts and Skills This activity requires students to: • find the mean, median, mode, and range of a set of data and describe how an outlier would change each of these. • make a line plot and a stem-and-leaf plot. • express probabilities as fractions. • analyze and interpret data. Guiding the Activity • The activity may be more interesting if you use data on the number absent each day in your own class. Students also need to know how many students are in the class. • Before starting the activity ask, “What are some things that could cause a lot of people to be absent one day?” Answers x x 1. x x x x x x

Scoring Rubric

Level 4 Standard to be achieved for performance at specified level Full Achievement The student made a line plot and a stem-and-leaf plot; found mean, median, mode, and range; expressed probability as a fraction; and predicted outcomes without errors. The student showed a thorough understanding of interpreting data and determining the effects of an outlier. Explanations were well written. Substantial Achievement The student made a line plot and a stem-and-leaf plot; found mean, median, mode, and range; expressed probability as a fraction; and predicted outcomes with only minor errors. The student showed understanding of interpreting data and determining effects of an outlier. Explanations were basically well written, but not thorough. Partial Achievement The student made numerous errors making graphs; finding mean, median, mode, and range; predicting outcomes; and finding probabilities. The student showed some understanding of interpreting data and determining the effects of an outlier. Explanations were not well written. Little Achievement The student gave answers that were incomplete or had many errors. The student showed little or no understanding of interpreting data and determining the effects of an outlier. Explanations were missing or unclear. No Achievement The student provided a completely incorrect response, one that was not interpretable, or no response at all.
