3. _______Distribution___________ 2 points 7 4 3 2 Calculate the MEAN for the distribution. The mean for this distribution is 4 4. We can use the mode as a measure of central tendency at all four levels of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio). 2 points a) False 5. The mean is only valid as a measure of central tendency for variables measured at ________________The sum of deviations at zero 6. What measure(s) of central tendency is (are) appropriate for the variable for gender and explain why? 2 points The mean is not a good set for the variable gender because it does not fall into a numerical data set. A better measure is the median because it is not susceptible to outliers and no numerical data.

Unformatted text preview: The mode might also be a good measure if the mode falls towards the center of the data set. 7. The following distribution 2, 3, 6, 1, 3, 4, 4 is a bimodal distribution? This could be true because the distribution has two different modes. 2 points 8. A study based on a sample of 9 students yields the following scores on a 10-point scale of cultural diversity awareness. 5 points 1,2,3,4,7,7,8,9,11 a) What is the mean? 5.78 b) What is the median ( position and value )?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
