When points in the scatter gram are evenly spread in all directions, this means that

A. The correlation between the two variables is positive.

B. The correlation between the two variables is low.

C. The correlation between the two variables is high.

Teacher Terrence gave a 50-item test to his students, where the mean performance of the class is 35, with a standard deviation of 4. Mark got a score of 38. What description rating should teacher Terrence give to Mark?

A. Below average

B. Average

C. Above average

D. Outstanding

C. Above average is the best description that teacher Terrence can give to Mark because his score is within one unit standard deviation above the mean value.

Which statement is CORRECT about standard deviation?

A. The larger the standard deviation the less dispersed the scores are.

B. The smaller the standard deviation, the more dispersed the scores are.

C. It is a measure of central tendency.

D. The smaller the standard deviation, the less dispersed the scores are.

D. The smaller the standard deviation, the less dispersed the scores are.

Given are two sets of score distribution

Set A: 8, 10, 11, 11, 12, 15, 17, 19, 20, 24, 25, 35

Set B: 10, 14,15, 15, 16, 18, 18, 20, 24, 26, 29, 35

Which statement best describes both sets of data?

A. The range of Set A is 26.

B. The range of Set B is 25.

C. The scores in Set A are less than dispersed than the scores in Set B.

D. The scores in Set B are less dispersed than the scores in Set A.

C. The RA = 27, RB = 25. Hence, the scores in Set B are less dispersed than the scores in Set A due to the smaller value of R.

What attribute makes the test item poor?**_** is an example of animals.

A. The blank at the beginning of the sentence.

B. It is a very easy test item.

C. It is a short question.

D. It is not a significant item.

Which of the following items represents norm-referenced grading system?

A. Peter was able to get 90 items out of 100 items in a Mathematics test correctly.

B. Fitch performed better in the test in Mathematics than 88% of his classmates.

C. Ritz was able to solve 88% of the problems correctly.

D. Glenn solved 9 problems out of 15 problems correctly.

B. Norm-referenced grading system is a method in which the performance of a certain student compares to the performance of other students in the group. Hence, the statement Fitch performed better in the test in Mathematics than 88% of his classmates is a norm-referenced statement.
