Class correlations (APA manual reading, lateness and absence)

17 Mar

How many hours spent reading APA, correlated with grade on lab 1 paper:

Please submit your 3 links to surveys to Francis, along with the number of hours per week, on average, that you read the APA manual. Be honest! It’s possible that the links and tips help people enough that they don’t need the manual as much and can still score well.

Absences and lateness correlated with lab 1, then with test 1.

The possible range on the grade measures was 1 -4, where higher scores indicated higher grades on the lab 1 report. The possible range on the lateness and absences measure was 0 -5, where higher scores indicated more lateness or absence from class. There was a non-significant negative correlation between test scores and frequencies of lateness or absence from class (r = -.42, ns). There was also a non-significant negative correlation between test scores and frequencies of lateness or absence from class (r = -.47, ns). However, there was a significant positive correlation between test scores and lab scores (r = -.563, p = .019).
