STATISTICAL ANAYSIS OF DATA       
Page1  Raw Data
The marks of the students secured in the achievement test is known as the raw scores or crude scores.
The raw scores are the following:5,7,8,9,10,15,16,16, 17,18,19,19,
 The raw scores are classified in the form of a frequency table  for statistical analysis . Frequency distribution  is the organisation of data and grouping of scores in to classes or categories.

Measures of central Tendency
Measures of central tendency deal with the types of averages of a series of scores. The most widely used  measures of central tendency are the mean, the median and the mode. They serve two purposes. First they throw light on the performance of the group as a whole. Secondly they are a means to compare the performances of two or more groups.
Arithmetic Mean
Mean is a commonly used average.It is obtained by summing up the values of items in a series and dividing the sum by the number of items.
When the scores are ungrouped the mean is computed by dividing the sum of the scores by the total number of scores. When the scores are classified in to a frequency table the Mean =∑fx /∑f     where x is the class interval, f is the corresponding frequency and N is the total number of scores.
(Calculation of  Arithmetic Mean)
Median
Median is the middle most score of a distribution. It is a positional average. Median is the value of that item which occupies the central position , when the items arranged in the ascending or descending order of their magnitude.
The median of ungrouped data can be calculated by ranking them usually in the ascending order. When there are N scores , the rank of the median will be  N/2 .
The class in which the N/2 observations fall is the median class. If l is the lower limit of the median class, and  i  is the class interval length and f the frequency of the median class, and m is the cumulative frequency up to the median class.
The Median=l+N/2-m/f*i
(Calculation of  Median)
Mode
Mode is the value of an item which occurs more frequently than all other items. It is the value of that item which is more prominent than others.When data is ungrouped the mode is the most repeated score.It is called ‘rude’mode.When scores are grouped, the rude mode is the midpoint of the interval in which the greatest frequency occurs.
(Calculation of  Mode)

Measures of Dispersion
The measures of dispersion means the measures of variability of the scores around their central tendency. Range, mean deviation, quartile deviation, and standard deviation are the important measures of dispersion.
Standard Deviation (SD)
SD is defined as the square root of the mean of squares of deviations from the mean. In order to calculate SD, deviation of separate scores from the mean (d=x-m) are calculated. The sum of the squares (∑d2  )is divided by the total number of scores  and  the square root of it gives the SD of the scores.
SD=√d2  /N
(Calculation of  SD)
Graphical Representation of Classified Data
Statistical data are represented diagrammatically for better clarity and understanding and  for quick and easy  reference
Pie Diagram.
It is a useful form of diagram to represent a group divided into a number of parts which are to be compared.
(Graph)
Histogram
A histogram is a two dimensional graph. The two variables are the class intervals and the frequency of the scores at each interval. The histogram is prepared by plotting the class intervals along the X axis and the corresponding frequencies along the Y axis.
(Graph)
Conclusion
From the statistical analysis of the raw data
The mean =
The median =
The mode=
The SD =
The high values of AM , median and mode and SD denotes that the students have secured  high  marks. It indicates that the  performances of the group of students  are in the above average level without much dispersion. It also  indicates the effectiveness of the classroom instruction provided to the students.
