If there are many frequencies for each score and less than 15 or 20 intervals, then an ungrouped frequency distribution with an interval width of 1 is appropriate. If there are either minimal frequencies per score (say lor 2) or a large number of unique scores (say more than 20), then a grouped frequency distribution with some other interval width is appropriate.
Next, we examined various methods for depicting data graphically, including bar graphs, histograms (ungrouped and grouped), frequency polygons, cumulative frequency polygons, shapes of distributions, stem-and-Ieaf displays, and how to display data. Finally, concepts and procedures related to percentiles were covered, including percentiles, quartiles, percentile ranks, and box-and-whisker plots. At this point you should have met the following objectives: (a) be able to construct and interpret statistical tables, (b) be able to construct and interpret statistical graphs, and (c) be able to compute and interpret percentile-related information.
