Measures of Variability Measures of Variability ● Range ● Standard Deviation ● Variance Range Range ● Range = high score  low score. ● Unstable because it depends on only two scores. Range = High score  Low Range = High score  Low score score 1 2 3 100 75 51 50 50 50 50 50 50 25 49 Range: 100 50 2 Standard Deviation (s) Standard Deviation (s) ● Average deviation of each score from the mean. ● Minimum value of s = 0. ● Larger s, more heterogeneous the group. = standard deviation of population s = standard deviation of sample σ Standard Deviation (s) Standard Deviation (s) ● Definitional Formula: s = √ Σ (X  X) 2 ÷ (n  1) Calculate the Standard Deviation Calculate the Standard Deviation s = √ Σ (X  X) 2 ÷ (N  1) X (X  X) (X  X) 2 5 41 1 23 9 9 4 16...
