SPSS controls for all the predictor variables except the one you are looking for - Beta is indicating how significant a relationship is between a predictor variable and DV given that all the other predictor variables are held constant - Pattern and parsimony: - Generalizability issue when it comes to using non-human animals for research \

- You come up with a mechanism that could be responsible for the relationship between x and y - Then with this mechanism you have to test this prediction - Partial correlation: splitting of third variable into different categories - When you only have two variables and another possible variable, then you do partial correlation - When you have many predictor variables, you use multiple regression - Preference for violent TV in grade and its correlation with aggression in grade 3 - This is only at one time point: this is a cross-sectional correlation - Grade 13: no significant correlation at grade 13 of preference for violent TV and aggression in grade 13 - Aggression in grade 3 is correlated with aggression in grade 13: this is an auto-correlation (across correlation) - Cross-lag correlation: preference for violent TV is correlated with aggression in grade 13 (diagonal correlation) - Correlation is bi-directional vs. when you say one variable predicts another variable, that is establishing temporal precedence - Predictor variables include third variables and independent variables - Don’t say correlation when talking about multiple regression - Prediction is one way - Correlation is bi-directional - So do not say a predictor variable is correlated with a DV - When it only predicts the DV - “Significant positive relationship” - don’t worry about the value of beta definitely add the significance END OF MIDTERM TWO CONTEN
