By the end of this project, you will be able to interpret the results of central tendency measures (Mean, Median and Mode)and calculate them step by step using built-in functions in Google Sheets. Moreover, You will be able to identify the most popular variability measures such as the range, interquartile range (IQR), variance, and standard deviation. After you complete this project, you will have enough knowledge to start working on many datasets by exploring it and identifying the most important measures in Descriptive Statistics. You will also have the ability to recognize outliers values in your data set and interpret the measure of statistical dispersion. This project will give you a head start into data analysis using google sheets. We will be working on a cleaned dataset with no missing/null values. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Make a copy of google sheet into your Google Sheets and calculate The Central Tendency Measures using built in functions, without using statistical functions. 

  2. Calculate The Central Tendency Measures (Mean Median, and Mode) using statistical built-in functions in google Sheets.

  3. Calculate the range, and interquartile range (IQR) using built in statistical functions. 

  4. Calculate the variance, and standard deviation using built in statistical functions.
