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.
