Unformatted text preview: Variability, Group Variability, Group position, Standard score position, Standard score Spring 2008 Spring 2008 KIN 369 KIN 369 Variability Variability A second type of descriptive statistic. Describes spread or heterogeneity of scores. 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 Standard Deviation (s) Standard Deviation (s) Definitional Formula: s = (X - X) 2 (n - 1) Calculate the Standard Deviation Calculate the Standard Deviation s = (X - X) 2 (N - 1) X (X - X) (X - X) 2 5 4-1 1 2-3 9 9 4 16...
