1.11 Investigate bivariate numerical data using the statistical enquiry cycle

(91036)
Internal 3 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 and measures
  • consider sources of variation
  • gathering and cleaning data
  • using multiple displays, and re-categorising data to find patterns and relationships, in multivariate data sets
  • presenting a report of findings

The data must be numerical, with the explanatory variable (x variable) being either continuous or discrete, and the response variable (y variable) measured.  The context of the data should be considered throughout the process.

Scholarship Statistics candidates are expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction and generalisation, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding and ideas to complex situations.

The student will use knowledge of statistics to apply statistical and probability concepts and methods to complex problems in contexts which may be unfamiliar, interpret and, where appropriate, make inferences and clearly communicate concepts and findings.

     Applying and interpreting statistical and probability concepts and methods may involve:

  • exploring data
  • drawing on informed contextual knowledge
  • making inferences
  • dealing with sources and consequences of uncertainty
  • applying appropriate models
  • stating and evaluating assumptions of models used
  • explaining conceptions and processes (e.g. simulation-based processes)
  • critiquing based on the Problem-Plan-Data-Analysis-Conclusion (PPDAC) cycle
  • offering competing explanations and important follow-up questions
  • evaluating statistically based and / or probabilistically based reports
