Question

**Scores on the GRE.** A college senior who took
the Graduate Record Examination exam scored 630 on the Verbal
Reasoning section and 670 on the Quantitative Reasoning section.

deviation of 107, and the mean score for the Quantitative Reasoning
was 425 with a standard deviation of 154. Suppose that both
distributions are nearly normal. Round calculated answers to 4
decimal places unless directed otherwise.

1.Write down the short-hand for these two normal distributions.

The Verbal Reasoning section has a distribution N( , )

The Quantitative Reasoning section has a distribution of N( , )

2. What is her Z score on the Verbal Reasoning section?

3. What is her Z score on the Quantitative Reasoning section?

4. Relative to others, which section did she do better on?

**A.** She did the same on both sections

**B.** Quantitative Reasoning

**C.** Verbal Reasoning

5. What is her percentile score on the Verbal Reasoning section? Round to nearest whole number.

6. What is her percentile score on the Quantitative Reasoning section? Round to nearest whole number.

7. What percent of the test takers did better than she did on the Verbal Reasoning section? %

8. What percent of the test takers did better than she did on the Quantitative Reasoning section? %

9. What is the score of a student who scored in the 54th54th percentile on the Quantitative Reasoning section? Round to the nearest integer.

10. What is the score of a student who scored worse than 94% of the test takers in the Verbal Reasoning section? Round to the nearest integer.

Answer #1

1. Verbal Reasoning section has a distribution **N(461,
107)**

Quantitative Reasoning section has a distribution of
**N(425, 154)**

2. This is a normal distribution question with

= 630

P(x < 630.0)=?

z = 1.5794

3. This is a normal distribution question with

x = 670

z = 1.5909

4. Since their z score is greater for Quantitative Reasoning So
**B. Quantitative Reasoning**

Scores on the GRE. A college senior who took the Graduate Record
Examination exam scored 640 on the Verbal Reasoning section and 740
on the Quantitative Reasoning section. The mean score for Verbal
Reasoning section was 461 with a standard deviation of 107, and the
mean score for the Quantitative Reasoning was 450 with a standard
deviation of 147. Suppose that both distributions are nearly
normal. Round calculated answers to 4 decimal places unless
directed otherwise.

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test
commonly taken by graduate school applicants in the United States.
The total score is comprised of three compo- nents: Quantitative
Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. The first two
components are scored from 130 - 170. The mean score for Verbal
Reasoning section for all test takers was 151 with a standard
deviation of 7, and the mean score for the Quantitative Reasoning
was 153 with a standard deviation of 7.67....

Amanda took the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and scored
160 in verbal reasoning and 157 in quantitative reasoning. The mean
score for verbal reasoning was 151 with a standard deviation of 7,
compared with mean µ = 153 and σ = 7.67 for quantitative reasoning.
Assume that both distributions are normal.
(a) What were Amanda’s Z-scores on these exam sections? Mark
these scores on a standard normal distribution curve.
(b) Which section did she do better on, relative to other...

A quantitative section of the GRE is scored between 130–170, and
the average score falls somewhere around 151. with a standard
deviation of 12. Assuming these findings are approximately normal,
answer the following.
1. What is the z-score for a GRE score higher
than 160?
2. What proportion of students scores 152 or
above
3. What proportion of students scores between
131 and 170?
4. What GRE score represents the 95th
percentile?
Use the Z-score table of Areas Under the...

The Graduate Record E (GRE) has a combined verbal and
quantitative mean of 1000 and a standard deviation of 200. Scores
range from 200 to 1600 and are approximately normally
distributed.
a. What percentage of the persons
who take the test score above 1400?
b. What percentage of the persons
who take the test score above 700?
c. Below what score do the bottom
30.9% of the test-takers score?

Wendell just took the GRE (graduate record exam) and wants to
know how he stacks up compared to other students. The GRE is a
standardized test with a normal distribution of scores. He knows
the z score for his test result, z = 0.33, and
wants to know the proportion of people who scored lower than him on
the GRE. Which column in the Unit Normal Table should John use to
answer his question?
Proportion between Mean and z
Proportion...

1. (6 pts) The Graduate Record Examination
(GRE) is a test required for admission to many U.S. graduate
schools. Students' scores on the quantitative portion of the GRE
follow a normal distribution with mean 150 and standard deviation
8.8. In addition to other qualifications, a score of at least 160
is required for admission to a particular graduate school.
What proportion of combined scores can be expected to be over
160?
