Typically in engineering practice this number is 579. This is good enough to study something how depends on another property. More important to sketching the measured data. I will very happy if one company will produce a good scientific calculator with stat plot possibility and data sharing to/from computer.

I remember one of my Professor fail any students 1 standard deviation below averages. In other words, around 16% (1 in 6) will fail the class ... I don't remember the class size, but it was definitely more than 15.

OK, but I am speaking about the "classical" engineering data collecting (you standing near a pump and set few measuring points with a valve and draw a diagram). And not a single data set, but measured data points, (X, Y) values. For mapping a range no need more than 79, and 1015 is far enough. And your measurement and analysis of data will not more precise if you make more measurement. Because the site engineering is not a laboratory. But I am a mechanical engineer, maybe some electrical guy do it on another way. In my practice everything is dirty, sludge everywhere, compressors are few hundred kW's, blowers are higher than me, silos are few 1000 m3's, mass flows hundred tons per hours. In this case no need too much points.

...and for the single variable measurement, just calculate Student tvalues divided by SQRT(number of measured data points). You will get something this:
Code: ===================================================================================== And you can see clearly, if you want to reduce the variance of the measured data, you must to make at least n=7 measurement for twosided probability P=0.95 and n=5 for P=0.90 (and n=4 for P=0.85). Of course, this is not reflecting your examscore example, because that is a measurement of 15+ independent variable and your professor generated from these measured values one property (the limit of acceptable score), and my example is about when you measures ONE variable 579... times. It is must to understand the difference. In your case it is required to collect AND store data if you want to draw the limit and later want to separate the measured values, but in my case this is not required. In my case the data collection purpose is increasing the reliability (decreasing variance).

Because of my personal attachment to this calculator: It helped me through my final year at school (where I was in the mathematical/natural science section) and through university (aerospace eng.). Ah yes nostalgia. I used the Canon F73P in high school and it's my favourite.
