Identifying & Calculating Averages

1. Identifying & Calculating Averages

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to calculate any kind of average, even the average of certain events when some events repeat. Learn the general formula to use to calculate any average.

Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

2. Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

By describing the data using central tendency, a researcher and reader can understand what the typical score looks like. In this lesson, we will explore in more detail these measures of central tendency and how they relate to samples and populations.

How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

3. How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

Measures of central tendency can provide valuable information about a set of data. In this lesson, explore how to calculate the mean, median, mode and range of any given data set.

Visual Representations of a Data Set: Shape, Symmetry & Skewness

4. Visual Representations of a Data Set: Shape, Symmetry & Skewness

Visual representations are a fantastic way of understanding and analyzing your data. Use this lesson to understand the characteristics of visual representations of data.

Spread in Data Sets: Definition & Example

5. Spread in Data Sets: Definition & Example

Identifying the spread in data sets is a very important part of statistics. You can do this several ways, but the most common methods are through range, interquartile range, and variance.

Maximums, Minimums & Outliers in a Data Set

6. Maximums, Minimums & Outliers in a Data Set

When analyzing data sets, the first thing to identify is the maximums, minimums, and outliers. This lesson will help you learn how to identify these important items.

Finding Percentiles in a Data Set: Formula & Examples

7. Finding Percentiles in a Data Set: Formula & Examples

Percentiles are often used in academics to compare student scores. Finding percentiles in a data set can be a useful way to organize and compare numbers in a data set.

Calculating the Standard Deviation

8. Calculating the Standard Deviation

In this lesson, we will examine the meaning and process of calculating the standard deviation of a data set. Standard deviation can help to determine if the data set is a normal distribution.
