*Ms. Johnson’s class = 1; Mr. Cordero’s class = 2
**Maximum score in parentheses.


(a) create a grouped frequency distribution of all spelling test scores, including both classes (N=52)—be sure to include intervals (using the “Rule of 15”), counts, cumulative frequencies, and cumulative percentages;

(b) calculate the mean (rounded to nearest whole number), median, and mode of spelling test scores for each Ms. Johnson's and Mr. Cordero's classes;

(c) calculate the variance (s2) and standard deviation (s) of spelling test scores for each class; be sure to show your calculations (or if Excel or SPSS was used, document your steps):
