Data Handling IQ correlation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Data Handling Project

Introduction

For this piece of maths course work I am going to compare the correlation between year 10 and 11 KS2 and IQ results. I will be getting the information of the schools computer under Mayfield schools data.

Hypotheses

Having looked at them Mayfield data on the school computer I have come to this hypotheses. The higher the students IQ the higher their KS2 results will be. I will test this hypotheses by sampling the Mayfield data and constructing a box and whisker diagram.

The way I collected this data was to first go onto the Mayfield school data collection program and selected the year, gender, IQ, and KS2 level for all year 10 and 11 pupils, I then sampled the data by taking every third person to get at least 30 people in each level.

 I did not use levels 2 and 6 as there were not enough people in these groups to get a good comparison as I set a minimum of 30 people in each level.

Conclusion

Form my results I have discovered that the lowest levels in levels 3-5 go from 78 -101 this proves my hypotheses to be correct as there is a correlation between the steady increase in IQ and level.

Also from my results I have discovered that the highest levels in levels 3-5 go from 104 -124 this also proves my hypotheses to be correct as there is a correlation between the steady increase in IQ and level.

Conclusion

Throughout the work that I have shown I feel that I have proven my hypothesis to be correct. I have shown this by using a number of different techniques and skills. I have used box and whisker diagrams to compare my results and I think that I have shown my results give a good readings. I have found that the people who achieved level 3 at key stage 2 have a lower IQ than people who achieved a higher level at key stage 2.

    This is because; only 17 people achieved level 2 and my sample consists of only 15 students per KS2 level, as you can see my sample covers almost everyone that achieved a level 2. This makes my findings very reliable.
