Homework Help: Math -- Statistic types used in public speaking

Posted by Regina on Saturday, October 6, 2007 at 7:25pm.

This is actually in my communications class. I have to decide which is the best statistic type is best to use in my speech. (mean, median or mode)

I am struggling to decide which statistic would be used to support the following assertions?

Louisiana’s educational system has improved dramatically and now ranks higher than any other southern state. _____________

Louisiana’s students are struggling with test scores reaching a 7 year low. It is essential that more federal funds be routed to improving Louisiana’s schools. _____________

I also need to answer why and how can this be manipulative of the audience?
This can be manipulative of the audience if they do not understand the correlations of the statistics given, as most listeners capacities for numerical data may be limited. If numbers and statistics are presented without visual reinforcements, the audience may not grasp their importance.
