You had the chance earlier in the week to perform an article critique on correlation and simple linear regression and obtain peer feedback. Hopefully you are excited about the potential these tests hold; equally important is that you recognize some of their weaknesses. Now, it is once again time to put all of that good brainstorming to use and answer a social research question with the correlation and simple linear regression. As you begin the Assignment, be sure and pay close attention to the assumptions of the test. Specifically, make sure that your variables are metric level variables that can easily be interpreted in these tests.
For this Assignment, you will examine correlation and bivariate regression testing.
To prepare for this Assignment:
• Review this week’s Learning Resources and media program related to regression and correlation.
• Using the SPSS software, open the Afrobarometer dataset or the High School Longitudinal Study dataset (whichever you choose) found in the Learning Resources for this week.
• Based on the dataset you chose, construct a research question that can be answered with a Pearson correlation and bivariate regression.
