# Welcome to AP Statistics

## Project 1 - Public High Schools and their incoming classes

The data has Deering's, Portland's, and CBHS 9-12 grade classes their gender, sending school and 8th grade NWEA.

### Overarching questions:

• Have the ability of incoming students changed over that last 4 years?
• Do students come more prepared to other HS?
• Do some students come more prepared from certain middle schools?

In pairs, each of you will take one grade. In the pair, one of you take Math, the other reading and find:

1. Basic numerical summaries:
• find the average NWEA score for the grade
• find the average NWEA score for each middle school
• find the average NWEA score for each gender
2. histogram of nwea scores
3. pie graph of the gender breakdown (so percent male and female) for the grade [only one of you will need to do this]
4. pie graph for the NWEA classifications (see below) for the entire grade
5. bar graph of how many students from each school come to that HS[only one of you will need to do this]
6. Write concluding insights from above. [on your slide]

Looking at everyone's data: each group will do one of these - signup on the overview sheet

• write one slide with these time series graphs showing over time:, (each group must do one, if extra, skip)
• NWEA math at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• NWEA reading at each school over the 4 years(all on one graph)
• # of students coming to each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• % below grade level math at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• % below grade level reading at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• % above grade level math at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• % above grade level reading at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• #avg female math score at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• # avg male math score at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• percent female at each school over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• Males avg score at each scool over the 4 years (all on one graph)
• Females avg score at each scool over the 4 years (all on one graph)

• TOGETHER - concluding statements about what you have learned and compare all grades.

Exceeding: Create a frequency distribution table and histogram by hand.

Now put everyone's research together in one google slideshow. (Bl1, Bl3, Bl4) Try to make it as uniform as possible. Together write concluding statements about what you have learned.

At the top of the each slide put names and what grade each person worked on.
