? Question 2 0 out of 10 points

If one calculates r for a set of data and r equals 0.84, one can be certain that the relationship between the variables is not spurious.

? Question 3 0 out of 10 points

A correlation coefficient expresses the direction but not the magnitude of a relationship.

? Question 4 10 out of 10 points

If scores are z scores and if r equals 1 then zX will always equal zY.

? Question 5 10 out of 10 points

The formula for rho is actually just the formula for Pearson’s r simplified to apply to lower order scaling.

? Question 6 0 out of 10 points

As the value of r increases, the proportion of variability of Y that is accounted for by X decreases.

? Question 7 0 out of 10 points

If one calculates r for a set of numbers and then adds a constant to each value of one of the variables, the correlation will change.

? Question 8 0 out of 10 points

Rho is used where one or both variables are at least of interval scaling.

? Question 9 0 out of 10 points

r decreases as N decreases.

? Question 10 0 out of 10 points

In order to compute r, we must first convert each score to its z score and then do our calculations with the z scores.
