Soc 5 Final Review Definitions: Concordant Pair: in a crosstabulation of two orderable discrete variables, one observation has a higher rank on both variables than the other member of the pair Discordant Pair: in a crosstabulation of two orderable discrete variables, one member of a pair of observations ranks higher than the other member on one variable, but ranks lower on the second variable. Regression Line: a line that is the best fit to the points in a scatterplot, computed by ordinary least squares regression. Standardized Regression Coefficient: is the size of the effect of the slope in terms of how many standard deviations the dependent variable changes for the increase of one standard deviation of independent variable. (Key word is the "standard deviation of dependent variable and independent variable"). Correlation Coefficient: a measure of association between two continuous variables that estimates the direction and strength of linear relationship. Slope: measures the amount of change in the dependent variable for every change in the independent variable. If a regression line is positive it goes from lower left to upper right. A negative slope in the regression line goes from upper right to lower left.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
