Discussion: Correlation and Bivariate Regression

Whether in a scholarly or practitioner setting, good research and data analysis should have the benefit of peer feedback. For this Discussion, you will perform an article critique on correlation and bivariate regression. Be sure and remember that the goal is to obtain constructive feedback to improve the research and its interpretation, so please view this as an opportunity to learn from one another.

To prepare for this Discussion:

Review the Learning Resources and the media programs      related to correlation and regression.

Search for and select a quantitative article specific      to your discipline and related to correlation or regression. Help with      this task may be found in the Course guide and assignment help linked in      this week’s Learning Resources. Also, you can use as guide the Research      Design Alignment Table located in this week’s Learning Resources.

By Day 3

Write a 3- to 5-paragraph critique of the article. In your critique, include responses to the following:

  • What is the research design used by the authors?

Why did the authors use correlation or bivariate      regression?

  • Do you think it’s the most appropriate choice? Why or      why not?

Did the authors display the data?

Do the results stand alone? Why or why not?

Did the authors report effect size? If yes, is this      meaningful?

Be sure to support your Main Post and Response Post with reference to the week’s Learning Resources and other scholarly evidence in APA Style.
