Statistics 311 Learning Objectives Data Collection and Surveys A1 Given a study identify population sample parameter sampling frame and statistic A2 Given a survey sample determine if the sample is a voluntary response sample or a convenience sample A3 Given a study recognize typical forms of biases such as potential undercoverage nonresponse and response bias A4 Given a study determine whether a SRS stratified random sample cluster sample or systematic sample was selected A5 Given a study s objective decide when to use a stratified random sample cluster sample systematic sample or SRS A6 Given a description of a study determine if it the study is a census or a sample survey Summarizing with Graphics B1 Given a set of raw data identify the individuals and the variables B2 Given a variable determine whether it is categorical or quantitative B3 List which graphical methods pie charts histograms etc are appropriate for categorical and for quantitative variables B4 Given a histogram stem plot or dot plot determine the number of individuals in a particular range B5 Given a set of raw data create a histogram dot plot or stemplot by hand or with appropriate software B6 Given a histogram dot plot or stemplot describe the distribution s shape skewed left skewed right symmetric or multimodal center and spread B7 Given a histogram dot plot or stemplot identify values that would be considered outliers B8 Given a graphical summary propose an explanation of the distribution of the data B9 Given a description of a variable predict what shape the histogram of that variable would take Summarizing with Numbers C1 Given a set of raw data calculate the principle summary statistics mean median quartiles inter quartile range variance standard deviation by hand or using appropriate software C2 Explain how the mean and median are related for different shapes of a distribution skewed left skewed right or symmetric C3 List the following characteristics of the standard deviation a The
