UNIT 5 DISCUSSION 2 2 Unit 5 Discussion 2 A meta-analysis (Anderson & Bushman, 2001) reported that the average correlation between time spent playing video games ( X ) and engaging in aggressive behavior ( Y ) in a set of 21 well-controlled experimental studies was .19. This correlation was judged to be statistically significant. In your own words, what can you say about the nature of the relationship? Coefficient represents the extent of the correlation or a relationship between two variables: the independent and dependent variable. In our case, this meant that 19 experiments of 19trials supported the hypothesis set out by Anderson & Bushman. In the case, we are being given the correlation coefficient between two variables of the time spent playing video game (X) where the appealing behavior (Y) is assumed. This signifies that there is a low relationship/correlation or rather weak linear association which exists between two assumed variables. This means that 19 out of 21 experiments where X showed Y, thriving to the

    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.
