and analyze statistical studies for their organizations. Topics 
covered include basic statistical concepts, frequency distributions, 
percentiles and percentile ranks, the normal curve, central 
tendency, variability, derived scores, correlation, classical true-
score theory, reliability, validity, passing scores, weighting and 
combining test scores, converting scores to final grades, fairness,  
Factor analysis, Multivariate Analysis and adverse impact.
