How fast can you go? Drag the terms to the appropriate definition. When you get it correct, it will disappear from the list. If it is not correct, it will not stick to the definition and will float back to the list. The timer will start when you begin.

unimodal

Quartiles

outliers

multimodal

measures of dispersion

Ranking

bimodal

range

measures of central tendency

mean

midpoint

bell-shaped

Symmetry/skewness & Peakedness (modality)

mode

median

midrange

variance

deviation from the mean

standard deviation

found by adding all the values together and dividing by the sample size

the middle value when arranged in ascending or descending order

one mode

distributions that are both unimodal and symmetric

the average of the squares of the deviations from the mean

the difference between the data item and the mean

the value that occurs most often

mean, median, mode,

more than one mode

mean of the smallest and largest values

the process of assigning ranks to a set of data

ranking that divides the data set into 4 groups

When describing the shape of a distribution, we should consider

The center of the distribution is itsâ€”the value that divides the distribution so that approximately half the observations take smaller values, and approximately half the observations take larger values.

difference the greatest and least values

two modes

these values vary significantly from the other values and have more of an effect on the mean than it does on the median

the square root of the variance

used to quantify how much the data is spread out (range, variance, standard deviation)
