♦How Much Does RCTC Remeber from Middle School? Results♦

The Results

              From the 12th of November to the 16th of November I conducted an experiment to know if community college of Rochester remembered things that were taught to us in middle school. To do this I developed ten questions from the subjects being math, history/geography, science, English/reading and music/art. (to see how and why I developed these questions click here) I created two questions for each subject then I printed 100 sheets to pass out to 80 students and 20 staff members. I didn’t get to hand them all out so I had 20 staff members and 50 students for a total of 70. Before I started gathering data I made some of my own predictions of how the results of the experiment. If you want to know what my estimations and the questions were, click here. Otherwise, I might slightly talk about them in this post/essay.

           The topic that I’m going to talk about in this post is going to be about the results in comparison to my predictions. I’ll explain each subject separately and also compare the student scores to the staff scores. So let us get started and take a look at this graph that I made from the data that I collected.

Graph
I made this graph so you could see my predictions next to the actual results. Should be pretty self-explanatory. (if not comment down below)

If a score was more than 0.2 off I’ll go in depth of why I was wrong if not means my predictions were close/correct.

Math (Blue Bars)

            For students, I predicted that the average score would be a 1.5 and the result was 1.41. For staff, I predicted that they would score an average of 1 and the result  1.15. As an entire overall score, I predicted an average of 1.25 and the actual score was 1.33. For the math portion, I think that is safe to say that my predictions were correct. (this is the last time I say this if you want to know what my predictions were, click here.)

History/Geography (Red Bars)

          For students, I predicted that the average score would be a 0.5 and the result was 0.83. I guess some students remember how many protons are there in oxygen. For staff, I predicted that they would score an average of 1.25 and the result 0.65. I honestly don’t know why my prediction was 0.6 off (which is a huge difference) because staff members are old and they have voted more than the students meaning they should know the first ten amendments especially if they were voting. As an entire overall score, I predicted an average of 0.75 and the actual score was 0.57.

Science (Green Bars)

          For students, I predicted that the average score would be a 1.5 and the result was 1.41. For staff, I predicted that they would score an average of 0.25 and the result  0.9. I have no idea as to why so many staff members remember the symbol for gold is (Au). I only asked one science teacher on top of that. As an entire overall score, I predicted an average of 0.25 and the actual score was 0.85. The difference between my prediction and the result was 0.6 I’m not sure why RCTC knows what Au stands for.

English/Reading (Yellow Bars)

           For students, I predicted that the average score would be a 1 and the result was 0.57. Its sad students don’t know what retaliate means. Maybe I just know what it means because it is a pokemon attack. For staff, I predicted that they would score an average of 1 and the result  1.15. As an entire overall score, I predicted an average of 1 and the actual score was 0.74, probably because the students did pretty bad and brought the entire score down form my prediction.

Music/Art (Purple Bars)

            For students, I predicted that the average score would be a 1 and the result was 0.57. Many students were writing purple and forgot that indigo existed. For staff, I predicted that they would score an average of 1 and the result  1.15. As an entire score, I predicted an average of 1 and the actual score was 0.74. Then again the students brought down the overall score.

Overall Subjects (Black Bars)

                For students, I predicted that the average score would be a 4.75 and the result was 4.78. For staff, I predicted that they would score an average of 5.25 and the result  5.75, I guess staff still remembers a lot from when they were younger. As an entire overall score, I predicted an average of 4.75 and the actual score was 5.06. I think the reason I was off for an overall score was because the staff brought up the overall average. But I was right on one thing for sure… the average was going to a failing grade.

Thank you for reading today’s post. Were your predictions correct? Why do you think some of my predictions were incorrect? Comment down below and leave your own opinions and thoughts on this experiment. Be expecting a few posts every week (on my next post I might talk about my favorite wrong answers so stay tuned.). Also comment down below of your ideas for a weekly question experiment. Thanks, yeet, cya, bye.
