The raw scores are displayed in the accompanying table: What is the most common score given in the evaluations? 3 Three occurred nine times and the second most frequent number was five with eight occurrences. Continued: What percentage of students gave Professor Smith an evaluation higher than 3? 50% (number of student) / (Students giving that response) = percentage of students with that response 30 / 15 = 50% Fifteen of the 30 students, or 50%, gave an evaluation of 4 or 5. Continued: What percentage of students gave Professor Smith an evaluation of 2 or less? 20% (number of students) / ( # students with that response) = % of students with that response 30 / 6 = 20% Continued: What is the relative frequency of the students who gave Professor Smith an evaluation of 3? 0.3 (# of students with that response) / (# of students) = Relative frequency 9 / 30 = .3 it is true relative frequency is How often something happens divided by all outcomes. it is true the frequency is the outcome it is true (outcome) / (all outcomes) = relative frequency
