Question

US News & World Report reported on many factors contributing to the breakdown of public education. One study mentioned in the article found that over 90% of the nation’s school districts reported that their students were scoring “above the national average” on standardized tests. Using your knowledge of measures of central tendency, explain why the schools’ reports are incorrect. Does your analysis change if the term “average” refers to the mean? To the median? Explain what effect this misinformation might have on the perception of the nation’s schools.
