STATISTICAL TEST • The first step in determining what statistical test to use is to determine the type of research question to be answered by the statistical analysis. In elementary courses, the two basic types of questions are: 1. the degree of relationship or dependence among variables (H0 = there is no relationship or dependence, and the statistical test answers the question as to whether any relationship or dependence found is sufficiently different from zero that it can be considered...

Open DocumentUnderstanding the Pearson Correlation Coefficient (r) The Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r) assesses the degree that quantitative variables are linearly related in a sample. Each individual or case must have scores on two quantitative variables (i.e., continuous variables measured on the interval or ratio scales). The significance test for r evaluates whether there is a linear relationship between the two variables in the population. The appropriate correlation coefficient depends on...

That’s why values of r have strongest possible relationship. According to Burns (2011), “The r values of +1.00 and -1.00 both indicate the strongest possible relationships among variables. Positive (+) 1.00 is the strongest or perfect positive relationship and indicates that variables change together, either increasing or decreasing simultaneously...

The correlation research method is appropriate when researchers want to study and “assess relationships among naturally occurring variables.” Assessment means making predictions about the nature of the relationships being studied.
