Hey guys,

Im pretty sure that SD allows us to see the spread of data and how far away everything is from the mean. But I was wondering if a smaller SD means our results are more likely to be reproducible.

The reason why I think that- because SD is how far data is away from the mean. So if we have a smaller SD, that means there is less variation and all the data is closer to the mean. And shouldn’t that mean that we are more likely to reproduce the same results?

Cheers, Zoe
