# Question

Look at the standard normal distribution in Figure 1.4 to answer the following questions:

a. Approximately what proportion (or percentage) of scores in a normal distribution lie within a range from -2σ below the mean to +1σ above the mean?

b. Approximately what percentage of scores lie above +3σ?

c. What percentage of scores lie inside the range -2σ below the mean to +2σ above the mean? What percentages of scores lie outside this range?

## Answer to relevant Questions

For what types of data would you use nonparametric versus parametric statistics? Under what circumstances will the value of SS equal 0? Can SS ever be negative? Why do we divide by (N -1) rather than N when we compute a variance from an SS term? How is a t distribution similar to a standard normal distribution score? How is it different? Briefly discuss what information do you look at to evaluate whether an effect obtained in an experiment is large enough to have “practical” or “clinical” significance? What is an “exact” p value?Post your question
