In this lesson we are going to quickly show how to calculate standard deviation in Excel using the STDEV function.
It consists of only one argument: the cells for which we want to calculate a standard deviation.
We’ll write Equals, STDEV, and then select the cells.
For this particular example, we have a standard deviation of about 2.78.
Note that any Text, or Logical Values are ignored when using this version of standard deviation calculation.
This lesson has gone through the STDEV function, which returns the standard deviation of a range of cells.
