7 IQ tests are standardized so that the mean score is 100 for the entire group of people who. take the test However if you select a group of 50 who took the test you probably would. not get 100 What statistical concept explains the difference between the two means. A Statistical error,B Inferential error,C Residual error. D Sampling error, 8 A researchers studies the factors that determine the number of children future couples. decide to have The variable number of children is a. A Discrete variable,B Continuous variable,C Categorical variable. D Ordinal variable, 9 A teacher asks students to identity their favorite reality television show What type of. measurement scale do the different television shows make up. C Interval,10 The median is always, A The most frequently occurring score in a data set.
B The middle score when results are ranked in order of magnitude. C The same as the mean, D The difference between the maximum and minimum scores. 11 The seminar rooms in the library are identified by the letters A to H A researcher records. the number of classes held in each room during the first semester What kind of graph. would be appropriate to present the frequency distributions of these data. A Histogram,B Scatterplot,C Bar chart,D Box plot, 12 A set of scores is presented in a histogram The histogram shows a series of bars that tend. to decrease in height from left to right What is the shape of the distribution. A Leptokurtic,B Positively skewed,C Negativity skewed. 13 What is the mean for the following scores 2 5 4 1 8. 14 What is the mean for the scores shown in the frequency distribution Value f. 15 What is the median for the following scores 2 5 4 1 8. 16 A teacher gave a statistics test to a class of Geography students and computed the measures. of central tendency for the test scores Which of the following statements cannot be an. accurate description of the scores, A The majority of students had scores above the mean.

A Bell shaped,B Asymmetrical, 21 Take the formula Z X where is the mean of the population X is the value of the. element Z is the z score and is the standard deviation What does this formula calculate. A Confidence interval,B Standard score,C Standard error of the mean. D Variance, 22 A population has a mean of 35 and a standard deviation of 5 After 3 points are added. to every score in the population what are the new values for the mean and standard.

24 If the scores on a test have a mean of 26 and a standard deviation of 4 what is the z score. for a score of 18, 25 A population has a 50 and 10 If these scores are transformed into z scores the. population of z scores will have a mean and standard deviation of. A 50 and 10,B 50 and 1 96, 26 If all possible samples of size n 30 are selected from a population with 80 and 10 and. the mean is computed for each sample then what shape is expected for the distribution of. sample means, A The sample means tend to form a normal shaped distribution whether the. population is normal or not, B The sample means tend to form a normal shaped distribution only if the population. distribution is normal, C The sample size of n 30 is too small to predict the shape of the distribution.
D The mean of each sample will be very close to 80 hence the distribution of means. will have little variability,27 What is a definition of the standard error. A Standard deviation of the sample,B Squared standard deviation. C Standard deviation of sample means,D Standard deviation of the population mean. 28 If a researcher sets a level of significance at 05 i e 5 what does this mean. A Five times out of 100 a significant result will be found that is due to chance alone. and not to true relationship, B Ninety five times out of 100 a significant result will be found that is due to chance. alone and not to true relationship, C Five times out of 100 a significant result will be found that is not due to chance but.
to true relationship,D None of the above,29 When does a researcher risk a Type I error. A Anytime the decision is fail to reject,B Anytime H0 is rejected. C Anytime H1 is rejected,D All of the above options. 30 Which of the following assumptions are required if an independent t test is to be used. A Samples are drawn from a normally distributed population. B Homogeneity of variances equal variances,C The data are either interval or ratio scales. D All the above assumptions A B and C are required. 31 What is the correct decision in a hypothesis if the data produce a t statistic that is in the. critical region,A Reject H0,B Fail to reject H0,C Reject H1.
D Fail to reject H1, 32 How does the shape of the t distribution compare to the normal distribution. A The t distribution is taller and less spread out especially when n is large. B The t distribution is taller and less spread out especially when n is small. C The t distribution is flatter and more spread out especially when n is large. D The t distribution is flatter and more spread out especially when n is small. 33 Suppose you wanted to apply a one tailed test as opposed to a two tailed test How would. you covert a significance of p 284,A 284 2 142,B 284 2 568. C 284 0 05 5 68,D 284 0 05 0142, 34 A research report summarizes the results of a t test by stating t 35 5 2 p 0 05. Which of the following is a correct interpretation of this report.
