Unformatted text preview: Review Exercises for Exam I 1. 13. Wibrwn Elementary Statistics In comparing two or more graphs plotted on the same axis, the relative frequency poiygon is more usefui than the histogram?®or F The histogram is definitely superior to the frequency polygon for presenting data for nominal
scaies®3r F in constructing figures and graphs, the zero points should always appear even though it may
sometimes require the use of “break marks” in the axis®3r F The same figure should never be used to represent both a frequency polygon and a percentage
polygon. T o@ Nominal measurements ten d to be iower in vaiidity than ordinal measurements. T o@
Nominal scaies represent quantitative differences. T or@ A ratio scale measurement is also an intervai scaie measurement.@or F The number of seconds taken to compiete a task is measured on a ratio scaieﬂor F A reported vaiue of 9.83 seconds has the reai iimits 9.825 and 9.835.@or F A measure of behavior may have iow reliabiiity and high vaiidity. T 0rd? . When you determine a score from a percentiie, you are finding a percentile rank. T or®
. A reiative frequency distribution shows the proportion of total scores which fali within a class intervai.(‘Dor F
The cumuiative frequency distribution ShOWS the number of cases that fall below the lower real limit of an interval. T 063 14. Muitipie Choice Questions Questions 16 concern the following frequency table. Score :

Exercise is carried out 500 times for each student. The distribution oftheir reaction times is Likeiy to be Symmetrical and unimodal
b. Positively skewed
c. Symmetrical and bimodal d. Negatively skewed
8. Mary’s percentiie rank on a math exam was 80 while Sue’s percentiie rank was 40 on the same Exam. We may say, therefore, that W gr gm, a. Mary answered twice as many items as Sue did b. Mary’s math achievement is double that of Sue's c. Sue scored as well or better than 40 members of this group None of the above
9. In a negatively skewed distribution, the proportion of cases between Q1 and the median is @25 b. greater than .25 c. less than .25
