Practical Exam Instructions (already distributed).
This exam has a total of four sections. You are required to use four sets of data to answer all the questions. Please see the individual instructions for each section. The total time allowed for this exam is 90 minutes. You must complete the exam in one seating. You will need JMP Pro and Excel software to analyze data and answer questions.
Note: This is an open book/note exam. You are expected to work individually to complete this exam before the due date. Getting help from outside resources other than what is made available to you via the canvas course site is considered a violation of the code of academic integrity for which you will be liable for the consequence. Remember the honor code.
Due date: 10/24 at 11.59 PM.
SECTION A:
Instructions:
• Use the following data file for this section
Section AData [Dataset #1]
• Remember the honor code.
• In addition to responding to multiplechoice questions, you need to submit an updated data file with your name appended to the front of the filename (e.g. firstname_lastname_filename).
• Create 2 new columns as follows:
 The first new column shows the outcome when you calculate the total score for a school as a combination of 'critical reading mean' + 'mathematics mean' + 'writing mean'.
 The second column will use a vlookup() function to segment the performance of a school according to the following Table:

Total score 
Performance 
01099 
D 
11001199 
C 
12001399 
B 
1400+

Question 1 15 pts
Create a pivot table on a new sheet to calculate how many schools were in each performance category. Show the outcome in both a table and a pie chart.

Create a word document (that you will upload here) and paste those screenshot in sequence as follows:
