THE FIRST LINK IS WHERE I INSERTED THE TABLES ALREADY ALL YOU WILL NEED TO DO IS PUT THE EXPLANATION UNDER BOTH OF THE TABLES EXPLAINING THEM
THE SECOND LINK IS THE DATA INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT THE DATA SHOULD REPRESENT.
Step 1: Write Section 1 of the DAA: The Data Analysis Plan
 Name the four variables used in this analysis and whether they are categorical or continuous.
 State a research question, null hypothesis, and alternate hypothesis for total and final.
 State a research question, null hypothesis, and alternate hypothesis for gpa and quiz1.
Step 2: Write Section 2 of the DAA: Testing Assumptions
Test for one of the assumptions of correlation – normality.
 Create a descriptive statistics table in statistical software to assess normality. This table should include the four variables named above, including skew and kurtosis for each variable.
 Paste the table in the DAA Template.
 Interpret the skewness and kurtosis values and determine whether the assumption of normality was violated or not violated.
Step 3: Write Section 3 of the DAA: Results and Interpretation
 Using the statistical software, paste the intercorrelation matrix for the four variables into the document.
 Below the output, first report the totalfinal correlation including degrees of freedom, correlation coefficient, and p value. Specify whether or not to reject the null hypothesis for this correlation.
 Second, report the gpaquiz1 correlation including degrees of freedom, correlation coefficient, and p value. Specify whether or not to reject the null hypothesis for this correlation.
Step 4: Write Section 4 of the DAA: Statistical Conclusions
 Provide a brief summary of your analysis and the conclusions drawn about correlations.
 Analyze the limitations of the statistical test and/or possible alternative explanations for your results.
Step 5: Write Section 5 of the DAA: Application
Analyze how you might use correlations in your field of study.
 Name two variables that would work for such an analysis and why studying the relationship may be important to the field or practice.
Submit your DAA template as an attached Word document in the assignment area.

7864 Data Set Instructions The 7864 data set is fictional data. The data represents a teacher’s recording of student demographics and academic performance across three sections of their course. Each course section consists of about 35 students (N = 105).
The data set is located on grades.jasp. You can download grades.jasp from the 7864 assignments instructions area. It will then open in JASP. There are 21 variables in the course data set. Refer to the table below.
