EPSY 435 – Educational Statistics Sampling Distribution of the Mean PopulationSampling Distribution of the Means 1.Draw random samples of size n from the population. 2.Compute and cumulate means for each sample. 3.Using the means, build a frequency distribution. Mean =  S.D. = where, What characteristics (i.e., center, spread, and shape) will each of the random samples tend to have? How will the sample means be related to the population mean? If you were to build a frequency distribution using the sample means, what do you think the distribution would look like? Why do you think that the sampling distribution of means tends to be normally distributed and why is this important? End Go to Question Summary

EPSY 435 – Educational Statistics Question Summary Explain the concept of the sampling distribution of the mean. What is it, where does it come from, and how is it used? Answers to the following questions may help guide the content and breadth of your response. Write in your own words, do not copy information out of your text. 1.What characteristics (i.e., center, spread, and shape) will each of the random samples drawn from the population tend to have? 2.How will the sample means be related to the population mean? If you were to build a frequency distribution using the sample means, what do you think the distribution would look like? 3.Why do you think that the sampling distribution of means tends to be normally distributed and why is this important?
