Identifying individuals with a high risk of Alzheimer’s disease usually involves a long series of cognitive tests. However, researchers have developed a 7Minute Screen, which is a quick and easy way to accomplish the same goal. The question is whether the 7Minute Screen is as effective as the complete series of tests. To address this question, Ijuin et al. (2008) administered both tests to a group of patients and compared the results. The following data represent results similar to those obtained in the study.

Compute the Pearson Correlation Coefficient for these data.
r =
Note: For all the calculations, if it is a decimal number with two or more than two places, leave only two decimal places after the decimal point and do not round.
A)If it is a negative correlation, please do not forget to include the negative sign.
B)The correlation is
Medium and Negative, Large and negative, Large and positive, Medium and positive
C) The alternative hypothesis in words for a twotailed test is
Group of answer choices
A.The correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series is significant
B.The correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series is not significant
C.The correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series is less than zero
D.The correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series is different from zero
D) The null hypothesis in symbols for a twotailed test is
A.H1: ρ = 0
B.H1: ρ ≠ 0
C.H1: r = 0
D.H1: r ≠ 0
E)
If we use a twotailed test with α = .01, the critical r values are:
Group of answer choices
A.±0.833
B.±0.874
C.±0.754
D.±0.669
F)Your decision is:
Group of answer choices
A.Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is a significant correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series
B.Fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is a significant correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series
C.Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is no significant correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series
D.Fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is no significant correlation between the scores on the 7minute screen test and the scores on the cognitive series
G)Report the results in APA
a)
correlation r='Sxy/(√Sxx*Syy) =  0.79
