In Chapter 13, as a class, you computed the correlation between extraversion and status striving with the above calculator. Report the correlation here ______.

Now, using the same data and correlation coefficient calculator: compute the approximate 95% confidence interval around the correlation coefficient. Next, for the confidence intervals you just computed, test H0: r = 0 against the alternative hypothesis H1: r ≠ 0, assuming α = .05.

In Chapter 13, as a class, you computed the correlation between extraversions and life satisfaction with the above calculator. Report the correlation here ______.

Now, using the same data and correlation coefficient calculator: compute the approximate 95% confidence interval around the correlation coefficient. Next, for the confidence intervals you just computed, test H0: r = 0 against the alternative hypothesis H1: r ≠ 0, assuming α = .05.

Using that simple question you asked your friends through social media back in Chapter 13, compute the approximate 95% confidence interval around the correlation coefficient. Next, for the confidence intervals you just computed, test H0: r = 0 against the alternative hypothesis H1: r ≠ 0, assuming α = .05.
