"is normal", some qualification must be given, i.e. “approximately Normal”.
Partially correct if interpretation is correct but not in context
correct comparison of the two groups is made only on the
basis of one of center, shape or spread
correct comparison of the two groups is made on at least
two of center, shape and spread but communication is
at least two of the same individual descriptions in both
groups (e.g. center and shape) but no direct comparison
between the two groups. Copyright © 2000 College Entrance Examination Board and Educational Testing Service. All rights reserved.

Incorrect if response fails to compare the two groups on any of
center, shape or spread (e.g. only compares the two groups
for one value of the flexibility ratings.) If a display that uses the frequencies as data is done in part (a), no credit is given in part (a)
(e.g. frequency boxplots, or frequency vs. frequency/ frequency vs. flexibility scatterplots).
However, if a student attempts an interpretation, and they do a credible job with the
interpretation, part (b) can be scored as partially correct (resulting in a score of 1 for the
problem). For example if a student says that there is a “positive linear relationship” or that
center, shape and spread are similar because stem and leaf displays of the frequencies look
similar, this is a credible interpretation. 4 Complete Response
