If the scores tended to “bunch up” in the low 80s, the shape of the distribution would be a) symmetrical b) positively skewed c) negatively skewed d) bimodal 2) Which one of the following is used to graphically display categorical data? a) histogram b) line graph c) stem plots d) pie chart 3) For a symmetric distribution, in general the a) mean and the median are the same b) mean is larger than median c) mean is smaller than median d) relationship between mean and median is unknown 4) A 20-item statistics test was graded using the following procedure: A correct response is scored +1, a blank response is scored 0, and an incorrect response is scored -1.
