In both the Charismatic and the punitive condition data sets there were 49 people surveyed. We know this because we were able to use descriptive statistics to show the count and that shows the number of people surveyed. The average or the mean of the charismatic condition is 4.20. The standard error is saying that 0.0975 % is the error that will normally occur if two different people are comparing results. The middle value or the median of the data set is 4.2 and the most frequently occurring value or mode is 4.8. The charismatic condition is skewed to the left because we are getting a negative number for the skewness data. The skewness is at -1.916441174. The difference between the largest and the smallest value which is also called the range is 3.5. The minimum score is 1.5 and the maximum score was a 5 given by the students for the charismatic condition.

The Frequency for the charismatic condition is telling us the summary of the data that is presented is the form of class intervals and frequency. This bar graph will show you the values of the scores starting at 1.5 and going up to 5. The frequency shows us the number of students who picked the scores.
