Module 9 Score Transformations and Their Effects

  • Why transform?

  • Effects on Central Tendency

  • Effects on Dispersion

  • Commonly transformed scores


Why do it
Why do it?

  • To curve grades! Higher or lower

  • When they are less or more spread out than origionaly


Effect of transformations on mean central tendency
Effect of Transformations on MeanCentral Tendency

  • Transformations – applying the same adjustment to all scores in a data set

  • Effects on the mean

    • Adding or subtracting a constant to all scores will increase or decrease the mean by that constant

    • Multiplying or dividing all scores by a constant will cause the mean to be multiplied or divided by that score


Effect of transformations on dispersion
Effect of Transformations on Dispersion

  • Effects on Dispersion

    • Adding or subtracting a constant to all scores will not effect measures of dispersion

    • Multiplying or dividing all scores by a constant will cause measures of dispersion to be multiplied or divided by that score
