Measures of Variation
a measure of variation of the scores about the mean

(average deviation from the mean)

Measures of Variation

Carry one more decimal place than is present in the original set of values.

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

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