In my experiment i looked at peoples guesses of how many beans were in a jar (to see if gender makes a difference). I have come to writing up the results sections and im really confused. I know i need to look at central tendency and measures of dispersion, but apparently mode and meanwould not be suitable because of the type of data. Does anyone know what you would call this data and explain why i cant do mean and mode?
The results that are far apart are extreme values. What level is it for (GCSE?), as there are different ways of using them.
i think the data is nominal. ia it an independant or repeated design?
the data is ordinal apparently. its for my a level cw so i gotta use all the posh words and its confusing!!!!thanx for your help but i still confused!its independent measures
