NZC Level 6, NCEA Level 1: Statistics and Probability

1.10 Investigate a given multivariate data set using the statistical enquiry cycle

Internal 4 credits

This standard is derived from Achievement Objective S6.1, plan and conduct surveys and experiments using the statistical enquiry cycle.  In particular,

  • determine and justify appropriate variables
  • cleaning data
  • using multiple data displays, and re-categorising data to find patterns, variations, in multivariate data sets.
  • comparing sample distributions visually, using measures of centre, spread, and proportion
  • presenting a report of findings.

It is important for students to consider the context of the data and make an informal inference about the population from the sample data.
