Example text

It does play a role in some statistical operations, however, and so is an important statistic to be aware of.  Because the range is based on only two numbers (or two levels in the case of an ordinal measure), its weakness is the lack of sensitivity and susceptibility to the effects of outliers. In summary, measures of central tendency and variability are useful for describing groups of measurements related to a single variable and are selected on the basis of the variable’s level of measurement.

Although not every author would agree that some of the more informal of these measures should be categorized as normor criterion­referenced, each of the measures fits within the definitions appearing at the beginning of this paragraph.  That method of score interpretation, therefore, would depend not only on knowledge of a single test taker’s score, but also on knowledge of the performance of the entire group against which the individual’s performance was to be compared.  GRE = Graduate Record Examination; SAT = Scholastic Aptitude Test.
