This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Collect data to answer questions related to human rights, social, economic, cultural, environmental and political matters
  • Summarise data into tables and summary statistics
  • Display data in diagrams
  • Critically analyse data in tables and diagrams in order to draw conclusions and make predictions

    The mode is used as a measure of central tendency to summarise ungrouped data. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6 
    The median is used as a measure of central tendency to summarise ungrouped data. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 7 
    The mean is used as a measure of central tendency to summarise ungrouped data.

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    Data in tally tables, frequency tables, two-way tables and stem-and-leaf diagrams is critically read and interpreted with an awareness of sources of error and data manipulation (e.g. grouping, scale, choice of summary statistics) to draw conclusions and make predictions. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    Data in bar diagrams, double bar diagrams, pie diagrams and line diagrams (own and in the media) is correctly read and interpreted with an awareness of sources of error and data manipulation (e.g. grouping, scale, choice of summary statistics) to draw conclusions and make predictions. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 
    The most suitable measure of central tendency is chosen correctly. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 4 
    The misuse of scales in diagrams as a source of error and bias is understood and explained with examples. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 5 
    The misuse of grouping in tables and diagrams as a source of error and data manipulation is explained with examples. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6 
    Predictions are made about social, environmental and political issues (e.g. crime, national expenditure, conservation, HIV/AIDS), characteristics of target groups (e.g. age, gender, race, socio-economic), attitudes or opinions of people on issues (e.g. smoking, tourism, sport) and other human rights and inclusivity issues. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 5 
    Interpret and determine chance variation. 
    OUTCOME RANGE 
    Possible outcomes (using two-way tables and tree diagrams) and their probability; actual outcomes and their relative frequencies. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The possible outcomes of simple experiments (of which the possible outcomes are equally likely) are determined by using two-way tables and tree diagrams. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    The list of possible outcomes is used to calculate the probability of each possible outcome. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 
    Simple experiments are performed and the frequencies of the actual outcomes are counted correctly. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 4 
    The frequencies of the actual outcomes are used to calculate the relative frequency of each actual outcome (the number of times the outcome happens divided by the number of trials in the experiment). 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 5 
    The probability of an outcome (calculated on the basis of equally likely events) is compared with its relative frequency (determined after many trials) and possible differences are explained. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6 
    The probability of an outcome of an experiment is used to predict the relative frequency of that outcome.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
