    2. The standard deviation of the sampling distribution is called the sampling error.
    3. The mean of several sample means gives the best estimate of the population means.
    4. The larger the sampling size the larger the sampling error.

    1. Confidence
    2. Point
    3. Sample
    4. Distribution
    View Answer

    1. Sampling distributions.
    2. Histograms.
    3. z-scores.
    4. None of the above.

    The standard error has been calculated as 2.6 and the sample mean is 10.00. Thus the 95% confidence interval lies between:
    1. 4.904 to 15.096
    2. 7.40 to 12.60
    3. 3.85 to 26
    4. There is not enough information available to work out the confidence interval.

    In another study you have a standard deviation of 12, a mean of 20 and a sample size of 50. What is the standard error?
    1. 0.089
    2. 0.069
    3. 1.7
    4. 0.589

    View Answer
    Finally, you still have the same data (a sample size of 7, a mean of 8 and a standard deviation of 4.2) plus the standard error and you know how to calculate the 95% confidence interval. Thus what is the 95% confidence interval?
    1. 2.80 to 10.80
    2. 3.36 to 11.36
    3. 4.90 to 11.10
    4. 3.98 to 11.98

    View Answer
    You still have the same data (a sample size of 7, a mean of 8 and a standard deviation of 4.2) plus the standard error. Next how would you calculate the 95% confidence intervals?
    1. To work out the 95% confidence interval you would have to multiply the standard error by 1.96.
    2. To work out the 95% confidence interval you would have to multiply the square root of the sample size.
    3. To work out the 95% confidence interval you would have to multiply the standard error by the standard deviation.
    4. To work out the 95% confidence interval you would have to multiply the standard error by 95.
    you would have to multiply the standard error by 1.96.

    Suppose that some assessment results for two types of offenders (sex offenders and violent offenders) were 60 and 50 respectively. Which type of offender did better in comparison to other offenders on the treatment course and which may need further treatment? The group means and SDs are 50 and 9 for sex offenders and 45 and 3 for violent offenders.
    1. To make such comparisons you need to convert the assessment results into z-scores. Thus the violent offender scored better in comparison to other offenders on his treatment course and you may perhaps want to refer the sex offender for more treatment.
    2. 95.15% of violent offenders scored better in comparison to this offender on his treatment course. You may perhaps want to refer the sex offender for more treatment.
    3. It is not possible tell from this data.
    4. The sex offender scored better in comparison to other offenders on his treatment course and you may perhaps want to refer the violent offender for more treatment.

    You have the IQs of a set of people. The mean of these IQs is 100. The standard deviation is 15. One student scored 90 on the test. This produced a z-score of -0.67 or -0.7 to 1 decimal place. Using the z-score table in appendix 1, what does this mean?
    1. Taking the z-score to 1 decimal place the table tells us that 75.80% of people in the set would have IQ's equal to, or greater than, the student. In other words the student is not very intelligent.
    2. Taking the z-score to 1 decimal place the table tells us that 75.80% of people in the set would have IQ's equal to, or lower than, the student. In other words the student is very intelligent.
    3. Taking the z-score to 1 decimal place the table tells us that 24.20% of people in the set would have IQ's equal to, or greater than, the student. In other words the student is very intelligent.
    4. None of the above.

    The mean of a set of IQs is 100 and the standard deviation is 15. The z score for one student is +2.2 Using the necessary z-score table in appendix 1, what does this mean?
    1. It tells us that the score is 2.20 standard deviations below the mean.
    2. 98.61% of scores are equal to or greater than this student's score - they are not very bright.
    3. Only 1.39% of scores are equal to or greater than this student's score - they are very bright.
    4. 1.39% of scores are equal to or lower than this student's score - they are not very bright.

    3. 1.33
    4. It is not possible to convert these figures into z-scores.

    In order to use standard normal distribution you need to transform the scores in the sample to the standard normal scores. This is achieved by which of the following? What is the result called?
    1. Subtracting the score from each mean and then dividing by the standard deviation. The result is called a z-score.
    2. Subtracting the mean from each score and then dividing by the standard deviation the result is called a z-score.
    3. Subtracting the score from the standard deviation and then dividing by mean of each score. The result is called a probability distribution.
    4. Subtracting the mean from the standard deviation and then dividing by each score. The result is called a probability distribution.
