Four measures of error 

Preferred hand 

Algebric/  constant  error  ­CE  ­1.63 

Non­Preferred hand 

Variable error­VE (SD) 



Total Variability­E 



Absolute Error­AE 



Ans2:  CE  is  the  mean  of  the  scores  including  positives  and  negatives.  The  positive  value  is 
obtained when the Curling ball goes over the target and a negative score is the distance before 
reaching  the target. The total positive or negative value will tell you if in overall you overshot 
Curling  ball  or  under  shot.  In  my  case  CE  value  of  ­1.63  means  that  average  distance  of 
scores  from  the  target  was  1.63  cms  before  reaching  the  target  point  when curling. Likewise 
­3.25  for  the  non­preferred  hand  would  mean  3.25  cms  distance on average the scores would

  A  low  E  score 
represents  a  better  performance because high values in average or standard deviation means a 
poor  skill  level  which  results  in  a  higher  E  score.  In  my  data  we  see  that  the  Preferred  hand 
has a lower E score which means I performed better with my Preferred hand.   
AE  (absolute  error) the mean of our score; this is different from CE mean the term “absolute” 
means  that  we  ignore  positive/  negative  signs.  It  gives  a  general  indication  of  the magnitude 
of  error  across  all  trials.This  would  tell  us  how  far  our  curling  ball  was  away  from  the 
target.  y  AE  score  for  preferred  hand  was  0.16  meters,  which  means  that  the  throw  is  0.16 

meters  away  from  the  target.  While,  for  non­preferred  hand  the  AE  score  was  0.33  which 
means the throw is 0.33  meters away from the target. 
Overall,  the  four  measures  of  error  reveals  that  my  performance  was  better  using  preferred 
hand than non­preferred. 
Ans3:  A  Paired­Ttest  was  performed  using  the  class  data  and  the  additional  data  which 
showed  that  the  class  performed  better  with  their  preferred  hands. In interpretation, since the 
calculated  t­value  (­3.92)is  greater  than  the  critical  values  at  0.05  confidence level, there is a 
significant  difference  between  the  preferred  and  the  non­preferred  hands  (  t=­3.92,  df=25,
