34. Consider the following sample regression line: Testscore=698.9—2.28*absence .
Variable, absence, is the total time a student is absent from lectures. You are asked to test the hypothesis: H0 :1) = 0 v.3. HI :1) :t 0 , where b is the slope of the regression model. You are also told that the t—statistic on the slope coefﬁcient is
4.38. What is the standard deviation of the slope coeﬁicient (round to hundredths):

from 10 to 5, what is the expected change in his/her testscore: J @mrease by 5*2.28
