Minitab^{®}
– Pearson's r

We previously created a scatterplot of quiz averages and final exam scores and observed a linear relationship. Here, we will compute the correlation between these two variables.

- Open the data file in Minitab: Exam.mwx (or Exam.csv)
- Choose
*Stat > Basic Statistics > Correlation*. - In
*Variables*, enter Double click the*Quiz_Average*and*Final*in the box on the left to insert them into the*Variables*box - Click
*Graphs.* - In
*Statistics to display on plot*, choose*Correlations and intervals*.

This should result in the following:

Quiz_Average | |
---|---|

Final | 0.609 |
