Mean: the average of all the data points; calculated
by taking the sum of the data points and divdiding by the total number of data
Range: one way of looking at the variability
in the data points, range is the difference between the highest and lowest numbers,
calculated by subtracting the lowest data point from the highest data point
in the set.
Standard Deviation: the degree to which each
data point in the set of data points varies or deviates from the mean; caluclated
by taking the square root of the sum of the deviations from the mean squared
divided by the number of scores in the sample.
Coefficient of Variance: a measure of the variability
of a set of data points; calculated by dividing the standard deviation by the
Correlation Coefficient: the degree to which
two or more different variables are related; calculated through a fairly complicated
procedure relating the variables of interest.
