    Range = highest score - lowest

    Median = 50th percentile. Arrange scores in order of value. Middle-most value = median. If two middle-most values, find mean of the two middle-most values.

    Don't know what rule of thumb you mean.

    For standard deviation, 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

    I'll let you do the calculations.
