Answer: Choose an item.

2. Consider r = 1.00 and r = –1.00. Which r value is stronger? Provide a rationale for your answer.

Answer: Choose an item.

4. Without using numbers, describe the relationship between the Hamstring strength index 120°/s and the Triple hop index.

A. There is a statistically significantly positive, strong relationship.

B. There is no statistically significant relationship between them.

Answer: Choose an item.

5. Which variable has the weakest relationship with the Quadriceps strength index 120°/s?

A. Hop index

B. Triple hop index

C. Shuttle run test

D. Side step test

Answer: Choose an item.

Provide a rationale for your answer.

A. Its absolute value is closer to 0.

C. It is negative.

Answer: Choose an item.

6. Which of the following sets of variables has the strongest relationship?

A. Hamstring strength index 120°/s and the Hop index

B. Quadriceps strength index 60°/s and the Carioca test

C. Quadriceps strength index 120°/s and the Side step test

D. Quadriceps strength index 60°/s and the Triple hop index

Answer: Choose an item.

7. In Table 5, two r values are reported as r = –0.498 and r = –0.528 (Shuttle run test or Side step test with first quadricepts strength index 60/s)

A. There was as negative linear relationship for the studied variables.

B. There was positive linear relationship for the studies variables.

Answer: Choose an item.

Indicate which would be more statistically significant, and provide a rationale for your answer.

A. -0.498 would be more statistically significant, because p=0.004.

B. -0.528 would be, because p=0.002.

Answer: Choose an item.

8. The researchers stated that the study showed a positive, significant correlation between Quadriceps strength indices and pre- and postoperative functional stability. Considering the data presented in the Table 5, do you agree with their statement? Provide a rationale for your answer.

A. Yes, I agree with their statement. The values of many r’s for the quadriceps index indicates a statistically significant relationship between pre and post-op functional stability.

B. No. The table only show the relationship between strength indices and function after surgery.

Answer: Choose an item.

9. The researchers stated that no significant relationship could be described between Hamstring strength indices 60°/s and functional stability. Given the data in Table 5, explain why not.

A. No p-values are<0.05.

B. Some p-value is less than 0.05.

Answer: Choose an item.

10. Consider the relationship reported for the Quadriceps strength index 120°/s and the Hop index (r = 0.744**, p = 0.000). What do these r and p values indicate related to statistical significance and clinical importance?

A. The linear relationship is of statistical significance, and maybe of clinical importance.

B. The linear relationship is neither of statistical significance, nor of clinical importance.

Answer: Choose an item.

Exercise 24

1. What is the r value listed for the relationship between variables 4 and 9?

A. -0.45

B. -0.32

C. -0.22

D. 0.74

Answer: Choose an item.

2. Describe the correlation r = –0.32** using words. Is this a statistically significant correlation? Provide a rationale for your answer.

A. It is a statistically significant moderate inverse linear relationship, because p<0.01.

B. It is a strong but not statistically significant relationship, because it has two starts.

Answer: Choose an item.

3. Calculate the percentage of variance explained for r = 0.53. Is this correlation clinically important? Provide a rationale for your answer.

A. 15 percent.

B. 28 percent.

C. 53 percent.

D. 75 percent.

What is the effect size for this relationship, and what size sample would be needed to detect this relationship in future studies?

A. Effect size is the same as r. Sample size needs to be larger and calculated.

B. False

Answer: Choose an item.

Answer: Choose an item.

8. Is the correlation between variables 9 and 4 significant? Is this correlation relevant to practice? Provide a rationale for your answer.

B. No.

Answer: Choose an item.

10. Examine the Pearson r values for LOT-R Total, which measured Optimism with the Task and Emotion Coping Styles. What do these results indicate? How might you use this information in your practice?

A. Yes.

B. No.

Answer: Choose an item.

BONUS QUESTION

One of the study goals was to examine the relationship between optimism and psychopathology. Using the data in Table 2, formulate an opinion regarding the overall correlation between optimism and psychopathology. Provide a rationale for your answer.
