  1. the ____________________________ of the relationship between two variables. How exactly?

 

 

 

So to review…. The sign (+ or -) in front of the coefficient tells us the ____________________________

of the relationship between the variables, & the where the number falls between 0 and 1 represents the _____________________________ of the relationship between the variables.

Which correlation coefficient indicates greater strength?  Choose one:      -.9        or      +.67

An important limitation of correlational research is that it CANNOT show us what?
