**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 10:58am1. Find the mean first = sum of scores/number of scores

Subtract each of the scores from the mean and square each difference. Find the sum of these squares. Divide that by the number of scores to get variance.

Standard deviation = square root of variance

2-4. Z score = Score in terms of standard deviations.

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions equivalent to the Z scores.

5. Highest value - lowest value = range

I'll let you do the calculations.
