Measures of Central Tendency and Variability
1. One semester, a statistics professor gave five exams to the class. In an effort to get the students to
apply what they have learned in their statistics classes they are told that the final course grade will
be based on the central tendency of their choice. Below are the scores for three of the students.
Which method would you suggest that each one choose (assuming that you want them all to get
high grades)?

2. Some researchers in understanding gloads on humans are interested in methods that can be used
to assist pilots withstand gload. To study this in a controlled environment, they need to develop a
standardized way to safely measure gloads in the research participants. One way that they can do
this is to have participants experience a gload and give them a simple calculation to perform. This
was repeated three times for each participant and the results are shown in the table below.
Calculate the mean, mode and median for each.

Measures of Variance and Standard Deviation
3. As part of an assessment for navigation, a professor has his students take a written test. He
teaches two sections of the class. The scores from the students in each section appear below.
Compute the variance and standard deviations for test 1 and test 2 shown below in the table. What
do the results say about the relative homogeneity of the two classes? Assume these are samples of
a much larger population.

4. Below in the table is the data from Set 1 of training airport security guards. In this study, participants
were to identify how many security risks they could identify. The researcher recorded how many
they identified. Assume this data reflects a sample.
• Calculate the standard deviation for this set of scores.
• Explain what the standard deviation means in this context. (Explain it as though you are
telling someone that knows nothing about statistics — i.e., make it sound simple.)
