Recently, students completed a reading assessment called a CASI. I took all the (anonymous) marks for each question and sorted them into data. We made some observations and some inferences based on this data. But I think there are some additional 'math tools' that can help us more.

These math tools are 'mean, median, and mode'.

Now students are asked to find the mean, median and mode for each question.

Once we have completed that, we will look at the 'm, m and m' and see if that additional information helps our analysis (hint: yes, it does) and, if so, HOW. What new insights are gained by having this extra information?

Also, it works in a bit of mean, median, mode calculation practice. :)

Students, if you have not yet completed this, please have it finished for THIS THURSDAY.
