QUESTION 1

Introduction

## Assessment is an important component in the learning process and promotes learning by

motivating students to improve their performance and academic achievement. Through
assessment, a teacher is able to know the performance of students in the test and could
compare the performance of the students in different tests. Knowing the performance of
the students and the level of difficulty of the test can help a teacher to plan his teaching
strategy to improve the students performance. The level of difficulty of the test can also
be adjusted according to the ability of the students. The mean marks and the standard
deviation are usually used to show the performance of the students and level of difficulty
of the test. Besides, composite index can also be used to show the students performance
and the level of difficulty of the test.

Aim
The aim of this project is to apply the concept of statistics in knowing the students performance in a
test and the difficulty level of the test.

Objectives
a) Calculate the mean and standard deviation of the marks of the students.
b) Calculate the composite index of the marks.

c) Use the mean mark, standard deviation and composite index to compare the students
performance and the difficulty level of different tests.

PART 1
Students are required to collect marks of a certain subject in the 2015 Mid Year and Final Year
examination for 50 students, to obtain information of the students achievement and level of difficulty
of a certain subject in two different test.

PART 2
Using the marks you have obtained in PART 1, calculate the
a) mean mark
b) standard deviation
for each examination.

PART 3
Based on the Mid Year Examination and the Final Year Examination marks of the students respectively,
group the marks according to the grade as shown in the Table 1:
