## Standard 4.0 Knowledge of Statistics

Students will collect, organize, display, analyze, or interpret data to make decisions or predictions.

### Topic

A. Data Displays

#### Indicator

**1.**Collect, organize, and display data

##### Objectives

- Collect data by conducting surveys to answer a question
- Organize and display data in stem-and-leaf plots
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 20 data points and whole numbers (0 – 100)

- Organize and display data in line plots
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 20 pieces of data with a range of no more than 20 and whole numbers (0 – 200)

- Organize and display data in double bar graphs
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories and intervals of 1, 2, 5, or 10 and whole numbers (0 – 100)

- Organize and display data in line graphs
###### Assessment limit: Use y-axis with intervals of 1, 2, 4, 5, or 10 and x-axis with no more than 10 time intervals and whole numbers (0 – 100)

- Determine the appropriate type of graph to effectively display data

### Topic

B. Data Analysis

#### Indicator

**1.**Analyze data

##### Objectives

- Interpret and compare data in stem & leaf plot
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 20 data points and whole numbers (0 – 100)

- Interpret and compare data in line plots
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 20 pieces of data with a range of no more than 20 and whole numbers (0 – 100)

- Interpret and compare data in double bar graphs
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories and intervals of 1, 2, 5, or 10 and whole numbers (0 – 1000)

- Interpret and compare data in double line graphs
###### Assessment limit: Use y-axis with intervals of 1, 2, 5, or 10 and x-axis with no more than 10 time intervals and whole numbers (0 – 100)

- Read circle graphs
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 categories and data in whole numbers or percents which are multiples of 5 and whole numbers (0 – 100)

##### Objectives

- Determine the mean of a given data set or data display
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 8 pieces of data and whole numbers without remainders (0 – 1000)

- Apply the range and measures of central tendency to solve a problem or answer a question

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.
