For this week you will be covering chapter 14 (Association) in the course text and chapter 10 in the SPSS workbook (Bivariate Correlation). For this assignment you will do two things:
1) Explain what “association” (correlation) means in statistics. What are tests of association used for? What do they tell us? Provide an example of a topic where you would like to study the association between variables.
2) Review the Output table on page 147 in the SPSS workbook (15th edition). What are the variables being looked at? Describe what was found between two different comparisons (associations) in the table (ex: variables A & B, and variables B & D). What does this tell you about the association between these different variables?
