6 The Distribution of Sample Means Find probability associated with sample of scores (M values) What is the probability of selecting a random sample of scores with a sample mean less than 130? P( X < 130) = ? What is the probability that a randomly selected individual has a score less than 130? P( M < 130) = ? Previously, single score: Sample of scores:

Learning Objectives: 1. Define the distribution of sample means (shape, expected value of M, and the standard error of M). 2. Determine a location of a sample mean M in the distribution of sample means (z). 3. Compute probabilities corresponding to specific sample means. 4. Standard error The Distribution of Sample Means

Definitions A sampling distribution is a distribution of statistics obtained by selecting all the possible samples of a specific size from a population. S ampling error is the discrepancy between a sample statistic and its corresponding population parameter. The distribution of sample means is the collection of sample means for all the possible samples of a specific size ( n ) from a population. It is an example of a sampling distribution.
