What is Median?

Definition of Median

One type of measuring an average in the set of scores. It is measured by arranging the scores in order from the smallest to the largest and then selecting the middle score. When there is an odd number of scores in the distribution, the median is simply the middle number. Whereas, when there is an even number of scores in the set, the median is the mean of the two middle numbers. The median is the middle of a distribution that is less sensitive to extreme values than the mean. It is usually used for higly skewed distributions.
