Quantitative Data Analysis Correlational Analysis
Assume that you are interested in the relationship between Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) scores (the total of all subtests) and graduate school grade point averages (GPAs) at the end of their graduate programs. Conveniently, you have access to the GRE scores and GPAs of a large number of graduate students who have graduated from the electrical engineering master’s program in an Ivy League university between 2000 and 2013. The Pearson correlation coefficient did not reach significance. What can you conclude from the data analysis? Can the result be generalized to all graduate students in electrical engineering master’s programs across the United States? Why or why not.
