Assessing Normality

Assessing normality is a critical aspect of statistical analysis, serving as a fundamental step in various fields such as finance, psychology, and biology. It involves evaluating whether data points follow a normal distribution, which is characterized by a bell-shaped curve. Normality assessment aids researchers and analysts in making accurate inferences and predictions based on the data at hand. Through techniques like histograms, Q-Q plots, and statistical tests such as the Shapiro-Wilk test, analysts can determine if a dataset conforms to the assumptions of normality. Understanding normality is pivotal for robust statistical modeling and decision-making processes.

  • Past flu cases in the Remulak school system #(n = 500)# were 15 per week. For the entire state, the weekly average was 16 and the standard deviation was 15.1. Are the kids in Remulak as sick as kids throughout the state?
  • A test was given in which the mean grade was 70% and the standard deviation was 12. a) If a student has a standard score (z) of -2.74, what is the student grade on the test?
  • In a recent survey of students who graduated from a large public high school, nine out of ten students reported that they passed biology with a grade of 75% or higher. What further data could be produced to be sure that this information is accurate?
  • The lowest test score is 10, and the highest is 100. The 25th percentile is 30, the median is 48, and the 75th percentile is 70; no student scored exactly 30, 48, or 70. If 120 students scored less than 70, then how many scored above 48?
  • A professor finds that the scores on a History exam are known to be normally distributed with mean and standard deviation of 55 and 15, respectively. What is the passing score if 95% of the students are to clear the course?
  • I just learnt the whisker-plot (box-plot) and will go with the option #C# and #D#. I just want you to make me correct if I am wrong or provide the explanation if my choices are right?
