Language: English (en)
Summary: This module provides an overview of Testing the Significance of the Correlation Coefficient for Roberta Bloom's Custom Collection of Collaborative Statistics col10617. It has been modified from the original module m17077, Facts About the Correlation Coefficient for Linear Regression, which is part of Collaborative Statistics collection (col10522) by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean. The test of significance is presented as a hypothesis test both using the p-value and using a table of critical values. Some of the material from the original module m17077 has been moved to module m33269 in Bloom's custom collection of Collaborative Statistics.
