An organization called The Durante Foundation values education and wants to fund an educational community grant to enhance graduation rates. The foundation needs to understand the central tendencies for education levels of individuals within the community. A survey was taken of individuals, ages 24–35, to determine years of completed formal education. The foundation is requesting the mean, median, and mode values for grades of educational attainment within the community. Use the Unit 3 Dataset, given in the resources, to complete this assignment. (13–20 equates to years in college.)

Assignment Instructions

Respond to the following prompts in a one-page, APA-formatted paper:

  1. State the following values (from the JASP output table):
    • Mean.
    • Median.
    • Mode (or modes).
    • Standard deviation.
  2. Interpret the data displayed in the output table. Which measure of central tendency is the most appropriate statistic to summarize these data and why?
  3. Provide a narrative summary to the Durante Foundation that would include the mean, mode, and median values and your interpretation of that data. Include implications of the findings for the foundation’s future funding priorities.

Additional Requirements

Your assignment should meet the following requirements:

  • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and formatting standards.
  • Length of paper: One double-spaced page.
