presentation to the following problem situation should be a formal academic
presentation wherein APA guidelines apply.

A
study wants to examine the relationship between student anxiety for an exam and
the number of hours studied. The data is as follows:

 Student Anxiety Scores Study Hours 5 1 10 6 5 2 11 8 12 5 4 1 3 4 2 6 6 5 1 2
1. Why is a correlation the most
appropriate statistic?
2. What is the null and alternate
hypothesis?
3. What is the correlation between
student anxiety scores and number of study hours? Select alpha and
interpret your findings. Make sure to note whether it is significant or
not and what the effect size is.
4. How would you interpret this?
5. What is the probability of a
type I error? What does this mean?
6. How would you use this same
information but set it up in a way that allows you to conduct a t-test? An
ANOVA?
