PROJECT TITLE: To determine the probability of T.C.E Form 1 students obtaining a passing

grade in a multiple choice examination if he guesses the answer for each question.

PROBLEM STATEMENT:

Over the years, students have established a theory that there is a high possibility of passing a

multiple choice (Paper 1) examination by simply guessing the answers for the question. In my

curiosity to see how strong the bases of this theory stand, I have chosen to forces this project on

it. In order to do so, I wish to obtain a sample of raw data from the form one year group of

Trinity College east and from this data, analyse and interpret it through the use of graphical

representation and statistical reports. This project would be used as an analytical investigation to

determine whether guessing can enable a student to obtain a passing great in a multiple choice

examination. Hopefully Student, depending on the performance displayed in the results, will

learn to take multiple choice assessments more seriously and will take into consideration that

preparation for a multiple choice question paper is just as equally important as he preparation for

a structured paper. One of the goals of this project is to inspire student to study hard and try for

their very best in multiple choice papers. As a result of this, students are expected to perform

better now that they would have taken the importance of a multiple choice more seriously.

VARIABLES:

Controlled Variable: The multiple choice exam, Age of the student involved, length

of time used for exam.

Manipulated Variable: The degree of difficulty of the questions in the multiple

choice examination.

Responding Variables: The grades achieved on the multiple choice examination

(measure in percentage)

Michael Timson

1. A Form 5 Paper 1 Chemistry exam, consisting of 40 questions, was obtained and then

photocopied 5 times.

2. The examination was then carried around to the Form 1 year group so that they can be

assessed and data can be collected.

3. The data was then collected and analyse.

Figure 1 displays the way in which the raw data was grouped. As seen in the table, each grouping

had a class width of 5. The marks were then converted to its percentage and each percentage

Michael Timson

grouping had a class width of 11. Class width is found by subtracting the lower class boundary

from the upper class limit. Therefore:

Class width = The uperclassboundary thelower class boundary .

From the table we can clearly see that the scores obtained are generally far from the pass mark from the

percentages displayed.

Figure 2 is a cumulative frequency table. From this table, a best fit cumulative frequency curve

was plotted, figure 3, and used to obtain the median, the upper quartile and the lower quartile.

The median, known as Q2, is an average that is unaffected by extreme values as is known as the

middle value. With the use of a ruler, the median was found to be 3.4 marks. Therefore, from the

median from the graph, it can be said that half of the student scored marks greater or less than

3.4 marks. This also means that according to figure 1, 50 students scored less than 10%. As

mention before, the graph was also used to obtain the lower quartile, also known as Q1, and the

upper quartile, known as Q3. Q1 is the value away through the distribution and Q3 is of the

way through the distribution. Q1 and Q3 are also both unaffected by extreme values and aids in

giving an idea of the variability of the data or the spread of data. The lower quartile was obtained

with a value of 2 marks. This meant that a quarter of the students got less than 2 marks and three

quarter got over 2 marks. The graph was then further analysed to obtain the upper quartile. Q3

was found to be 5.6 marks. This means that three quarter of the total students scored below 5.6

marks and only a quarter scored above it. As reference to table 1, this means that 75 students got

less than 22.5%.

From the cumulative frequency graph, the total number of students that pass and fail the

examination can be acquired. The total number of students that passed the exam was 2 students,

therefore giving a pass rate of 2%. The total number of students failed was 98 students and thus

giving a failure rate of 98%.

Figure 4 is a tabled derived to show the mark interval, the frequency (f) which shows the number

of students that scored within the mark interval, the midpoint of the group width and the

frequency (f) multiplied by the midpoint (x). From this table the mean, or the average mark, was

mean was 5.35. The mean show the centre of the data set and provides a better measure of

central tendency when the sample size is large and does not include outliers. The mean mark of

5.35 is average mark0

Figure 6 is a bar chart used to show the differences between different quantities or different

groups of process data. Spaces between the bars are used to differentiate the categories. In

essence, the bar charts summarise and display the data sets. The height of each rectangular bar is

directly proportional to the frequency of students that obtained the amount of marks in that

group.

Figure 7 is a histogram. A histogram is a representation of tabulated frequencies, shown as

adjacent rectangles, erected over discrete intervals (bins), with an area equal to the frequency of

the observations in the interval.

Figure 8 is a pie chart. A pie chart is a circular diagram that is used to represent statistical data

and aids in displaying the magnitude of each group through the use of angles. Each sector angle

is directly proportional to the information that it represents. The pie chart visually gives the

viewer an idea as to how big or small a particular group is to the others.

Figure 9 is another pie chart. This pie chart is used to show the difference, in terms of size, the

amount of student that passed and failed the chemistry examination. It showed that the vast

majority student indeed fail than passed.

Probability is the measure of an event to likely occur and is a number between o which is the

impossible event, and 1 which is a certain event. From the calculation based on the cumulative

frequency curve drawn (figure 3), A was used to represent students the probability that a student

scored 0-10 percent in the exam. The probability was found to be

DISCUSSION OF FINDINGS

The data obtained was analysed and express through various statistical representations. The raw

data was grouped and shown in tables. These tables also showed the percentages for the mark

grouping, the cumulative frequency used to plot a cumulative frequency graph, the midpoint,

frequency, the mark interval and the frequency x the midpoint giving fx. From this table, other

forms of statistical representation were derived. These include the histogram, the bar graph, box

and whiskers and the pie chart. The mean was also calculated using the tables.

From the second pie chart, we can clearly see that the number of student that failed the chemistry

exams was superior to the amount that passed. The ratio of the amount of students that failed to

the amount that passed was

examination,

amount failed.

The highest mark in this examination was 22 which were accomplished by 2 students. This mark

fell into the percentage group of 50% - 60%. When this mark is converted to a percentage, it was

found to be 55%. The lowest mark was 0 which was obtained by 28 students. Furthermore, 63

students obtained marks lower than 5. This means that over 63% of the student could not

achiever marks greater than 4. I can be clearly seen that the year group overall performance in

this exam was not good. The lack of preparedness for the exams was displayed through their

results thus showing us that a multiple choice paper cannot be done well through simply

guessing the answers. When guessing the answers in a multiple choice paper, the probability of a

student obtaining the right answer is . This means that that student only has a of a chance of

getting the right answer for each question for all question involved in the paper.

Student, as show cased in the data, cannot depend/rely on guessing to obtain a pass in the

multiple choice paper. Multiple choice papers need as much preparation as the structures paper in

order to achieve success. Without proper preparations, the probability of a student passing the

paper is low. However, if a student puts in the necessary preparations for the paper, the

probability of pass with a high grade is high.

Michael Timson

CONCLUSIONS

With the data collected as evidence, it can be concluded that multiple choice examinations

cannot be done properly by guessing through the paper but needs as much preparation as the

structured paper in order to obtain a successful grade.
