Correlation and Correlational ResearchA correlation coefficient of -1.00 represents a perfect negativeor perfect negative correlationA positive correlation with a coefficient of 0.4 would label the correlation as weakCorrelation indicates if two variables have a relationshipCorrelation research can show a relationship, but not prove a change to one variable will cause the other to changeCorrelation research starts with the assumption that a relationship does not existThe correlation coefficient measures the strengthor strength of the correlationThe correlation between the number of vacation days per year and the performance rating of the employee has a correlation coefficient of 0.3. How can the correlation be explained? There is a correlation between the number of vacation days and performance rating, but it is not verystrong.The following points of data, (1, 10), (3, 12), (4, 13), (7, 16), have a positive correlationThe scatterplot is reliable for the type of correlation and the existence of a correlation, but for a more accurate measure of strength, use the correlation coefficientThe stronger the correlation, the closer the points will appear as a lineor straight lineWhen one variable increases as the other variable increases the correlation is positive
