# A student read that we are 95% confident that the average score of young men on the quantitative part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress is 267.8 to 276.2. ?

## Asked to explain the meaning of this statement, the students says, "95% of all young men have scores between 267.8 and 276.2." Is the student right? Why ?

The 95% confidence is a measure of how sure we are of our model which is slightly different from saying that our model will be correct 95% of the time.
