Measures of Variation

a measure of variation of the scores about the mean

(average deviation from the mean)

Articles in professional journals and reports often use SD for standard deviation.

Round only the final answer, never in the middle of a calculation.

Round-off Rulefor measures of variation

For typical data sets, it is set of values.unusual for a score to differ from the mean by more than 2 or 3 standard deviations.
