Factual questions (1 point each-10 points) No lengthy answers

1. Suppose that on a 100 item multiple choice test almost all students scored

between 95 and 100 but a small scattering number of participants scored as

low as 20.When plotted as a curve, the distribution will show what type of a

curve?

2. If all participants in a group have the same score, what is the value of the

standard deviation of the scores?

3. If a difference between two variables is declared to be statistically

significant, what decision is being made about the Ho?

4. The researcher commits what type of an error when she/he fails to reject

the Ho which incorrectly states that there is no difference between the

population means?
