SAT Scores HOW GOOD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO GET INTO MIT? SAT Data Critical Reading Mathematics Writing Mean 497 513 487 Standard Deviation 115 120 115 Write down these numbers. You will need them. Make distribution graphs for each section of the SAT. The marks on the paper I gave you are 0.5 apart. Label mean and 3 standard deviations to either side. On which section did she do better? Assuming a normal distribution… Math: 550, Critical Reading: 540, Writing: 520 Math: 500, Critical Reading: 480, Writing: 475 Math: 750, Critical Reading: 710, Writing: 710 Top ten engineering schools Massachusetts Institute of Technology Stanford University University of California—Berkeley California Institute of Technology Georgia Institute of Technology University of Illinois—Urbana-Champaign Carnegie Mellon University of Michigan—Ann Arbor Purdue University Cornell Your job… For your engineering school, find the IQR of SAT scores. (College Board website has this information, as do the school websites.) Assuming a normal distribution, find the percentage of SAT takers who fall within the IQR for each section. Show this on your graphs. Is the SAT really normally distributed? Use the percentile list given to make your decision. Be ready to back up your decision.
