The average or mean is one measure of central tendency. There are several.

School grades, yes. Not so sure about greads, though.

average is defined as a single value which has tendency to represent the data as a whole. averages are also called "measure of central tendency" or "measure of location"

Though mean, median, and mode is central tendency, it is hard to put this into words.For an example:Your average grade in math class is an A. Though, how did you calculate that average? Well, since average means mean, you calculated that average using the method of central tendency, or in this situation, you found the mean.In other words, central tendency is just a method (mean, median and mode) to find the average, middle, and most occurring score or number in a set of data.I hope this helped! ;D~Lovingless
