Statistically speaking, what is wrong with this statement? Explain. (2 pts) They aren’t taking into account how many schools are in the total district. For Rochester, the ratio is 15/35. For St. Paul, the ratio is 20/90. If you look at the percentage of schools that are making AYP, then Rochester is actually doing better, having an AYP percentage of 43% as opposed to St. Paul’s percentage of 22%. 3. The proportion of schools in the entire state that are Making AYP is 1283/2624 = 0.4889 or  about 49%.  For 2010, the proportion of schools within the Rochester Public School District  that are Making AYP was 15/35 = 0.4286 or about 43%.

What students are saying

• 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.
