Week 5 Practice Worksheet


Provide a response to the following prompts.


Note: Each team member should compute the following questions and submit them to the Learning Team forum. The team should then discuss each team member’s answers to ascertain the correct answer for each question. Once your team has answered all the questions, submit a finalized team worksheet.


Your research team has been tasked with finding the correlation of the following scenario:


Four research participants take a test of manual dexterity (high scores mean better dexterity) and an anxiety test (high scores mean more anxiety). The scores are as follows:


Person                           Dexterity                       Anxiety

1                                  1                                  10

2                                  1                                    8

3                                  2                                    4

4                                  4                                  -2


Describe the process your research team would go through by completing the following:


Create a scatter diagram of the scores.

Describe in words the general pattern of correlation, if any.

Figure the correlation coefficient.


Explain the logic of what you have done, writing as if you are speaking to someone who has never heard of correlation (but who does understand the mean, standard deviation, Z scores, and hypothesis testing).


Provide three logically possible directions of causality, indicating for each direction whether it is a reasonable explanation for the correlation based on the variables involved. Explain your answer.
