Module 5 Correlation and Residual Analysis Assessing the ‘Goodness’ of Regression Models Objectives: Consider two quantitative variables, you should be able to • assess the ‘goodness’ of a linear regression model • calculate and interpret the correlation coefficient and coefficient of determination • perform residual analysis We can almost always construct the Least Square Regression Equation Two Questions: Is this approach appropriate? How good are the predictions?
