The Bell Curve in Education
The Bell Curve in Education is used to evaluate the students that are going well in their studies and students that require improvement in some areas. The bell curve gets its name after the teacher or statistician graphs some test scores, which results in the shape of the graph resembling a bell. Normal distribution is a common term used in the statistics and education world that refers the perfect shape of the curve, with no slant. The higher the middle arch gets, the more students have gained average scores.
