    • correlation coefficient
    • two aspects to a correlation coefficient: value &¬†design
    • scatterplots
    • where and why used (reliability, validity, prediction, theory verification)

    • illusory correlation
    • factors what distory correlation coefficients
    • why and how hypothesis testing with correlation
  2. Regression (non experimental design)
    • linear regression is used to describe the relationship between who samples, used to predict one score (scores on test) from the other score (hours studied)
    • extend the findings of correlational research
