...PEARSON’S PRODUCT-MOMENT CORRELATION COEFFICIENT
ANSWERS TO EXERCISE 23
Question 1
The r value for the relationship between Hamstring strength index 60o and the Shuttle run test is -0.149. This r value shows a weak correlation between the two variables, as it is less than the 0.3 threshold for significance. Therefore, the r value is not significant.
Question 2
Between r=1.00 and r=-1.00, there is no difference in terms of strength. Both values are on the extreme ends of the spectrum and...
