OBJECTIVESThe learners are expected to:a. Calculate the Standard Deviation of a given set of data.b. Calculate the Variance of a given set of data.
2.
STANDARD DEVIATION is a special form of average deviation from the mean. is the positive square root of the arithmetic mean of the squared deviations from the mean of the distribution.
3.
STANDARD DEVIATION is considered as the most reliable measure of variability. is affected by the individual values or items in the distribution.
5.
How to Calculate the Standard Deviation for Ungrouped Data1. Find the Mean.2. Calculate the difference between each score and the mean.3. Square the difference between each score and the mean.
6.
How to Calculate the Standard Deviation for Ungrouped Data4. Add up all the squares of the difference between each score and the mean.5. Divide the obtained sum by n – 1.6. Extract the positive square root of the obtained quotient.
10.
How to Calculate the Standard Deviation for Grouped Data1. Calculate the mean.2. Get the deviations by finding the difference of each midpoint from the mean.3. Square the deviations and find its summation.4. Substitute in the formula.
13.
Characteristics of the Standard Deviation1. The standard deviation is affected by the value of every observation.2. The process of squaring the deviations before adding avoids the algebraic fallacy of disregarding the signs.
14.
Characteristics of the Standard Deviation3. It has a definite mathematical meaning and is perfectly adapted to algebraic treatment.4. It is, in general, less affected by fluctuations of sampling than the other measures of dispersion.
15.
Characteristics of the Standard Deviation5. The standard deviation is the unit customarily used in defining areas under the normal curve of error. It has, thus, great practical utility in sampling and statistical inference.
16.
VARIANCE is the square of the standard deviation. In short, having obtained the value of the standard deviation, you can already determine the value of the variance.
17.
VARIANCE It follows then that similarprocess will be observed incalculating both standarddeviation and variance. It isonly the square root symbolthat makes standard deviationdifferent from variance.
