Which of the following is not a measure of variability?
Mode
Standard deviation
All of the answers on this list are measures of
variability!
Range
A scatter plot or scatter chart can be used to identify the association between variables.
According to Dr. Coy in the lecture video, if we can approximate the relationship with a line,
then there is probably a linear relationship between the two variables.
True
False
Unfortunately, if we wish to compute a table of descriptive statistics, we are forced to
calculate all of our statistics using individual Excel formulas. There are no shortcuts!
True
False
The confidencelevelin the descriptive statistics output tells us how much to add and
subtract from the mean to obtain the 95% confidence interval of the mean.

Test
Skew has to do with the direction of the longer tail of the distribution. If the skew is positive,
then the longer tail points to the right. For symmetrical distributions like the normal
distribution, the tails are identically sized and have, therefore, no skew.
True
False
It is possible that two variables could have a strong non-linear correlation but have a linear
correlation close to zero.

I know that this question is about the empirical rule, but none of the answers
on this list are correct!
Histogramsare used to learn about the properties of a distribution. These properties can
include shape, skew and multiple modes (e.g., bimodal distribution).
True
False
Variance and standard deviation measure the same attribute of a distribution.
True
False
although correlations close to 1 or -1 are obviously strong, determining whether or not the
correlation between two variables is strong is context specific and somewhat subjectively
determined.

False
