91266 Maths 2.11: Evaluating a Statistically-Based Report - 2 credits

Here's a statistical report: 4/4 people say Fox Glacier if f***ing cold.

General Information


Let’s warm ourselves up with some toasty statistical reports, stat. In the Evaluating Statistically-Based Reports internal, you will read a report that has statistics and evaluate the strengths, weaknesses and real-world applications. You will also write your own report discussing what you found.

For example, you might read a report on the amount of sport that young New Zealanders play. For your exam, you will need to answer three types of questions related to this scenario:

(1) What was in the report? (The purpose, a summary and what was found)
(2) How good were the statistics behind the report?
(3) How effective was the report?

This assessment is based on on the NZQA 91266 achievement standard (version 3) document.
