Question

The Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale is an intelligence test, which, like many other IQ tests, is standardized in order to have a normal distribution with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15 points.

As an early intervention effort, a school psychologist wants to estimate the average score on the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale for all students with a specific type of learning disorder using a simple random sample of 16 students with the disorder.

Determine the margin of error, m , of a 95% confidence interval for the mean IQ score of all students with the disorder. Assume that the standard deviation IQ score among the population of all students with the disorder is the same as the standard deviation of IQ score for the general population, σ = 15 points.

Give your answer precise to at least two decimal places.

m = ??? points

Answer #1

**Here , since population standard deviation is given and
the distribution is normal so we use Z-statistics to compute Margin
of error. We know that standard deviation of**

The intelligence quotient (IQ) score, as measured by the
Stanford-Binet IQ test, is normally distributed in a certain
population of children. The mean IQ score is 96 points, and the
standard deviation is 15.72 points. Convert the following into
z-scores:
a) x = 117
b) x = 132
c) x = 92
c) x = 72

1. An intelligence quotient, or IQ, is a measurement of
intelligence derived from a standardized test such as the Stanford
Binet IQ test. Scores on the test are normal distribution with a
mean score of 100 and a standard deviation of 15.

IQ scores (as measured by the Stanford-Binet intelligence test)
in a certain country are normally distributed with a mean of 100
and a standard deviation of 18. Find the approximate number of
people in the country (assuming a total population of 323,000,000)
with an IQ higher than 126. (Round your answer to the nearest
hundred thousand.)

a) IQ scores (as measured by the Stanford-Binet intelligence
test) in a certain country are normally distributed with a mean of
100 and a standard deviation of 20. Find the approximate number of
people in the country (assuming a total population of 323,000,000)
with an IQ higher than 133. (Round your answer to the nearest
hundred thousand.)
b) The mean batting average in a certain baseball league is
about 0.230. If batting averages are normally distributed, the

The Stanford-Binet IQ test has scores that are normally
distributed with a mean of 100. A principal in an elementary school
believes that her students have above average intelligence and
wants verification of her belief. She randomly selects 20 students
and checks the student files. She finds the following IQ scores for
these 20 students. IQ scores: 110,132, 98, 97, 115, 145, 77, 130,
114, 128, 89, 101, 92, 85, 112, 79, 139, 102, 103, 89
a. Compute the sample...

The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) is a common IQ test
for adults. The distribution of WAIS scores for persons over 16
years of age is approximately normal with mean 100 and standard
deviation 15. Use the 68–95–99.7 rule to answer these
questions.
(a)
What is the probability that a randomly chosen individual has a
WAIS score of 115 or higher?
(b)
In what range do the scores of the middle 95% of the adult
population lie?

Assume that we want to estimate the mean IQ score for the
population of statistics students. How many students must be
randomly selected for IQ tests if we want 90% confidence that the
sample mean is within 4 IQ points of the population mean and the
population standard deviation o = 15?

Students taking a standardized IQ test had a mean score of 100
with a standard deviation of 15. Assume that the scores are
normally distributed. Find the data values that correspond to the
cutoffs of the middle 50% of the scores.

In a standardized IQ test the mean score is 100 and
the standard deviation is 15. according to the empirical rule, 95%
of all those who took the test should have scores between

Scores on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale(a standard IQ
test) for the 20 to 34 age group are approximately bell shaped
symmetrical with a mean of 110 and standard deviation of 25. Use
the empirical rule to answer the following questions.
a. the scores of the middle 68% of all people lie between what
two values?
b. the scores of the middle 95% of all people lie between what
two values?
c. the scores of the middle 99.7% of all...
