Topic

A. Data Displays

Indicator

  • 1. Collect, organize, and display data
Objectives
  1. Collect data by conducting surveys
  2. Organize and display data to make tables using a variety of categories and sets of data
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories from one set of data and whole numbers (0 – 1000)
  3. Organize and display data to make pictographs using a variety of scales
    Assessment limit: Use scales of 2:1, 4:1, or 10:1 and whole numbers (0 – 100)
  4. Organize and display data to make single bar graphs using a variety of categories and intervals
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories of data with intervals of 1, 2, 5, or 10 and whole numbers (0 –100)
  5. Organize and display data to make line plots using a variety of intervals

Topic

B. Data Analysis

Indicator

  • 1. Analyze data
Objectives
  1. Interpret data contained in tables using a variety of categories and intervals
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories from one set of data and whole numbers (0 – 1000)
  2. Interpret data contained in pictographs using a variety of categories and intervals
    Assessment limit: Use scales of 2:1, 4:1, or 10:1 and whole numbers (0 – 100)
  3. Interpret data contained in single bar graphs using a variety of categories and intervals
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories of data, intervals of 1, 2, 5, or 10 and whole numbers (0 – 100)
  4. Interpret data contained in line plots using a variety of intervals

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
