Question

After entering the test scores from her Statistics class of 37 students, the instructor calculated the mean and the median of the scores. Upon checking, she discovered that the score entered was 52, but it should have been 62. When she corrects this score, how will the mean and median be affect

Answer #1

Based on the 37 students, the instructor calculated the mean and median. She discovered that score entered was 52, but it should have been 62.

Mean is affected by changing the observations.

Therefore the mean of score increase from the previous. Since the score change from 52 to 62.

Median is the positional average, it does not affect as long as the position does not changes.

If the median was less than 52, changing 52 to 62 does not result in change in median.

While if it was more than 52, the position of median shift by one observation.

Suppose a statistics instructor believes that there is no
difference between the mean test scores of students taking a
morning class and students taking an afternoon class. She takes a
sample from each of her classes, one morning and one afternoon. The
mean and standard deviation for 40 morning students (sample 1) were
78 and 17.8, respectively. The mean and standard deviation for 45
afternoon students (sample 2) were 82.2 and 19.9. Using ?=0.05,
determine if there is a difference...

A golf instructor is interested in determining if her new
technique for improving players’ golf scores is effective.
She takes four new students and records their 18-hole scores
before learning the new technique and then after
having taken her class. She then conducts a hypothesis test at a
significance level of 5%.
The data are as follows.
Player 1

Statistics students believe that the mean score on a first
statistics test is 65. The instructor thinks that the mean score is
higher. She samples 10 statistics students and obtains the
scores:

Test grades are believed to be normally distributed.
Use a significance level of 5%.

Your statistics instructor claims that 55% of the students who
take her Elementary Statistics class go through life feeling more
enriched. For some reason that she can't quite figure out, most
people don't believe her. You decide to check this out on your own.
You randomly survey 60 of her past Elementary Statistics students
and find that 34 feel more enriched as a result of her class. Do we
detect that the actual percentage of students feeling enriched is
different...

A statistics instructor wonders whether significant differences
exist in her students’ test scores in her three different sections.
She randomly selects the scores from 10 students in each section. A
portion of the data is shown in the accompanying table. Assume test

1. An honors statistics instructor wanted to know if the mean
performance of his 18 students was significantly better than the
national average score. The mean score of the 18 students
in his statistics class was 75. The national mean (i.e., µ) and
standard deviation (i.e., σ) for the Statistics test was 69 and 11,
respectively. Use α = .05. The fact that the population of scores
on the exam were normally distributed suggests that which
assumption was probably met?...

the age of their instructor. These guesses are given below:
