a) What is the correlation between student cumulative GPA and the number of hours spent on school work each week? Be sure to include the computations or StatCrunch output to support your answer. The answer is R= 0.30790085.

StatCrunch output:

Correlation between “Q10 What is your cumulative Grade Point Average at Kaplan University?” and “Q11 How many hours do you spend on school work each week?” is:

0.30790085

b) Is the correlation what you expected? No, I expected the correlation to be higher than what was computed.

c) Does the number of hours spent on school work have a causal relationship with the GPA? Yes, there is a causal relationship with the GPA. With more hours spent on school work, the result should be a higher GPA. This would be the same if there was less hours spent on school work, the result would be a lower GPA.

d) What would be the predicted GPA for a student who spends 16 hours per week on school work? Be sure to include the computations or StatCrunch output to support your prediction.

e) Create a graph to show its distribution.

f) Explain why these data might be normally distributed.
