Textbook Problem

The following sample of *n* = 6 scores was obtained from a population wish unknown parameters.

Scores: 7, 1, 6, 3, 6, 7

a. Compute the sample mean and stand and deviation (Note that these are descriptive values that summarize the sample data.)

b. Compute the estimated standard error for *M.* (Note that this is an inferential value that describes how accurately the sample mean represents the unknown population mean.)

**a.**

To determine

**To find:** Sample mean and standard deviation for the scores given.

Explanation

**Given info:**

A sample with 6 scores is provided in the question as: 7, 1, 6, 3, 6, 7 and parameters of the population are unknown.

**Calculation:**

Sum of scores, is

Calculate sample mean using formula:

Substitute

The formula for standard deviation is:

**b.**

To determine

**To find:** The estimated standard error for mean.
