Assignment W3 Measures of Central Tendency and Measures of Variability 1. The following scores were obtained in a single testing of a one minute sit-up test. When plotted, the scores appeared to fall along a normal curve. Report the appropriate measure of central tendency and measure of variability for this set of scores. Write an interpretation for the results obtained. 22 24 26 27 27 29 30 30 31 32 33 34 34 34 35 37 38 39 39 40 41 42 43 45 48 2. These scores below represent the results of the measurement final examination. The teacher gave an extremely easy test and the scores fell along a negatively skewed curve. Report the appropriate measure of central tendency and measure of variability. Write an interpretation for the results obtained.
