Question

Jacob finds a correlation of .55 between scores on a newly
developed questionnaire to measure *determination* *to
succeed* and grades at Tarrant County College (TCC).

**12)** Based on this correlation, we can explain
or predict how much of the variability in grades at TCC by
students’ determination to succeed score? What two other factors
might account for the unexplained the variance in student
grades?

Answer #1

Correlation = 0.55

Percent of variation explained by the succed score in grade is can be found by using the coefficient of determination is R squared.

R squared = (correlation)^2

=0.55*0.55

=0.3025

Therefore 30.25% of the variability in grades at TCC by students’ determination to succeed score.

Unexplained variance = 1-0.3025 = 0.6975

69.75 percent of unexplained variability in grades at TCC by students’ determination to succeed score.

The factor we cann add is number of hours of study & grades in midterm exam.or IQ score of the students to decrease unexplained variability

A researcher developed a questionnaire to measure how liberal or
conservative one’s attitudes are. Low scores indicate that the
person has liberal attitudes, whereas high scores indicate
conservatism. The researcher gave the questionnaire to n = 8 people
heterosexual couples (i.e., there are 8 pairs of scores). The
researcher wanted to know whether the wife’s attitudes (X)
predicted the husband’s attitudes (Y). The wives had a mean score
of M = 7.00, SD = 4.96. The husbands (Y) had a...

A researcher was interested in how students’ Graduate Record
Examinations scores (GREQ- Quantitative and GREV-Verbal) predict
college students’ graduate school Grade Point Average (GGPA). He
collects data from 30 college students. The GRE Quantitative (X1)
and GRE Verbal (X2) scores can range from 400-1600 (Note. This is
the old GRE score scale). GGPA (Y) can range from 0.00 to 4.00.
f. What proportion of variance in graduate grade point average
cannot be accounted by the variability in the quantitative GRE...
