Calculate in SPSS the mean, median, and the mode for each data set and cut and paste output boxes into a Word document:

DATA SET 1 (1-5 satisfaction ratings re: courses in one’s chosen major):

4, 2, 4, 3, 4, 4, 5, 4, 1, 4, 3, 3, 4, 5, 4, 5, 1

DATA SET 2 (Percentage correct on a categorization task):

78, 87, 90, 91, 75, 76, 88, 87, 77, 75, 92, 95, 78, 92, 87

THEN, answer the following questions below the output boxes:

1. How do these values compare for each data set – which one seems to be the most representative of the scores in the data set? Explain your answer completely.

2. In your own words, explain why the median is a better measure of central tendency than the mean for distributions that contain extreme scores.

Open a Word doc, cut and paste the text box that appears after you run the descriptive, then type up your answers to the above questions and upload here. Remember to include the SPSS output by cutting and pasting it into your assignment.
