SIMPLE STATISTICS
• Mode
• Median
• Mean
• Standard deviation
• Frequency
Mode
• The score attained by more students than any other scores.
• E.g. 25, 20, 18, 18, 18, 16, 15, 14, 14, 10, 10
• What is the mode in this distribution?
• 18
Median
• The point which separates the higher half of a sample from
the lower half (the midpoint)
• E.g.
• Uneven number of scores: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
• What is the median?
• 3
• Even number of scores: 10, 8, 6, 4
• What is the median?
• 7
Mean
• It is adding up all the scores and then dividing the sum by the
total number of scores.
• 10, 15, 18, 23, 29= mean is 19 [(10+15+18+23+29)/5)]

• = 54 (sum of the middle scores
divided by 2)
• Total of 32 students
• middle score for the top 16 is 55

N=32
• Mean?
• = 54.75 ≈ 55
• (total number of scores for all
subjects is 1752 divided by 32 equals
55)
STANDARD DEVIATION
• Averages are useful statistics but not sufficient.
• Eg.
• A: 19, 20, 25, 32, 39 (mean= 25; median=25)
• B: 2, 3, 25, 30, 75 (mean= 25; median=25)
• In both the mean and the median is 25; however, in A the
scores are clustered around the mean and in B they are spread
out.
• Thus, there is a need to describe the spread (variability) within
a distribution.
• There are various ways to measure the spread but the most
useful one is standard deviation.
• The more spread out the scores are, the larger the deviation
is, and the closer the scores are to the mean, the smaller the
deviation.
• Thus, a sd. of 2.7 means there is less variability than a sd. of
8.3.
Why is standard deviation useful?
• E.g. If you are comparing test scores for different schools, the standard
deviation will tell you how diverse the test scores are for each school.
• Imagine School A has a higher test score mean than School B. Your first
reaction might be to say that the kids at School A are smarter.
• But a bigger standard deviation for one school tells you that there are
relatively more kids at that school scoring toward one extreme or the
other. Then, it is possible that lots of gifted students were sent to School
A.
• In this way, looking at the standard deviation can point you in the right
direction when asking why the information is the way it is.
FREQUENCY
• Giving raw scores and percentages.
• Quantitative data can be summarized using frequency tables.
