Question

The scores of individual students on the American College Testing (ACT), a college readiness assessment, have a Normal distribution with a mean of 18.6 and a standard deviation of 6.0. At Northside High, 36 seniors take the test. Assume the scores at this school have the same distribution as national scores. What is the sampling distribution of the sample mean score for a random sample of 36 students?

Group of answer choices

A) Approximately Normal, but the approximation is poor

B) Approximately Normal, and the approximation is good

C) Exactly Normal

D) Neither Normal nor non-Normal—it depends on the particular 36 students selected

There are two major tests of readiness for college, the ACT and
the SAT. ACT scores are reported on a scale from 1 to 36. The
distribution of ACT scores for more than 1 million students in a
recent high school graduating class was roughly normal with mean μ
= 20.8 and standard deviation σ = 4.8. SAT scores are reported on a
scale from 400 to 1600. The SAT scores for 1.4 million students in
the same graduating class...

The ACT college readiness assessment is a curriculum- and
standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses
students academic readiness for college. Scores are based on a
normal distribution with a mean of 23 and a standard deviation of

(S-AQ 3.60) There are two major tests of readiness for college:
the ACT and the SAT. ACT scores are reported on a scale from 1 to
36. The distribution of ACT scores in recent years has been roughly
Normal with mean µ = 20.9 and standard deviation s = 4.8. SAT
scores are reported on a scale from 400 to 1600. SAT scores have
been roughly Normal with mean µ = 1026 and standard deviation s =
209. The SAT...

A sample of 16 students took the American College Testing (ACT)
Program composite college entrance exam and were found to have a
mean of 18 and a sample SD equal to 6. (A) What is the value of the
estimated standard error of the mean (SEM)? (B) Provide an
interpretation of the value obtained in part A. (C) Describe how
the researcher might reduce the size of the SEM if the study is
repeated.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress ( NAEP) includes
a mathematics test for eigth-grade students. Scores on the test
range from 0 to 500. Suppose that you give the NAEP test to an SRS
of 800 8th-graders from a large population in which the scores have
mean 299 and standard deviation 128 . The mean x¯¯¯ will vary if
you take repeated samples. The sampling distribution of x¯¯¯ is
approximately Normal. It has mean 299 . What is its standard...
