Your quiz will mostly comprise of multiple choice, true/false, and essay questions. The answers are at the end of the questions. 1. The measurement that describes the variation of a data set is called the_________. 2. When a scatter plot's (x,y) points are all pretty close to the "line of best fit", then how would you describe the relationship between the points? 3. True or False: Cause and effect relationships cannot be determined using the coefficient of determination. 4. True or False: Correlations are used to help identify the relationship between two variables. For example, the amount of rain in July (x) and the size of tomatoes in August (y) could be analyzed using correlation and regression techniques. 5. The scores of the top ten finishers in a recent LPGA Valley of the Stars Tournament are listed below. (Source: Los Angeles Times) 73 67 72 67 76 72 73 68 71 73 Find the mode score. 6. Multiple choice: The Median is a. the most stable measurement of Central Tendency. b. the least stable measurement of Central Tendency. c. only stable if the standard deviation is small. d. equal to the InterQuartile Range. 7. The correlation coefficient (r) can vary between the values of 8. The ______________________________ measures "how well" the line of best fit matches the scatter diagram relationship. 9. The average age of the students in a statistics class is 20 years. Does this statement describe descriptive statistics, census, simulation, or inferential statistics?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
