Our teams have been having trouble getting points for "Example calculations given" under Quantitative Data because our dependent variable might be time, or something that doesn't require calculation. Are we supposed to put averages? We don't put the averages in the table, because we leave those in the Statistics portion of the experiment.

We always did sample calculations for the Statistics portion. With the raw data table there normally isn't much to put calculations for besides average. Do include average in you sample calculations as well as any used in the experiment/the statistics portion.

My best advice is to not let the word "sample" deceive you- to get full points, you often have to show all your work. This includes the formula you are using and any calculations needed to construct your summary/second table.

If our experiment dictates that we need to use the raw data to calculate another number (i.e. using frequency to calculate period), my team draws a second table to list the calculated data. In this case, our sample calculations are the formula needed for the calculations (T=f^-1) and every individual calculation.

Otherwise, the summary table lists the averages for each level of the IV. We write out the formula for calculating the average and, once again, show the calculation for each data point.

Remember, we are proud of every team that participated and you are all winners.
