provide an in-depth discussion as to why it is critical to avoid the interpretation.
In this module, three areas were discussed that can serve as a problem in interpreting a correlation. They include:
Avoid a sense of absolutism from the relationship. A significant relationship that may be good for one set of variables may not be that great for another set.
Avoid interpreting a correlation as a cause/effect relationship. A change in one variable does not necessarily cause a change in another variable.
Avoid utilizing correlations and percentages as synonymous terms. A robs value of .90 does not mean that 90 percent of a relationship is perfect.
Pick one of the three areas, and provide an in-depth discussion as to why it is critical to avoid the interpretation. Use proper citations to support your response.
