91581 Statistics 3.9: Bivariate Data - 4 credits

Bivariate data is like Hagley Park: It feels dark & foggy, but there's sunshine on the other side.

This achievement standard comprises of a three-part project, using two sets of data (called bivariate data). Part 1 is plotting a graph, Part 2 is analysing the graph, and Part 3 is writing a report about the graph.

Unlike a ‘traditional’ exam, you won’t be sitting a test at the end of your learning. Instead, you will be able to work on the project over a period of time. It’s the digital equivalent of having a two-week research assessment at school, where you enter and leave your classroom each day.

In the graphing, there is a big focus on the relationship between two sets of data. So you will look at drawing the data (on a graph), evaluating, interpreting the data, and forecasting what might happen in the future.
