· What is the correlation coefficient (r) for the relationship between senior and freshman year scores?

· Does freshman year science scores significantly predict senior year science scores?

· Write out the F statistical string associated with this relationship. [F( dfreg, dfres)= F value, p=________]

· Write out the line of best fit equation for this relationship (Y=bX+a, substituting the b & a with values from the table).

· If someone scored a 70 on their freshman year science test, based on the line of best fit, what would their predicted senior year score be?
