1 Scores Showing a Relationship between the Variables of Study Time and Test Grades Student Study Time in Hours Gary Bob 1 1 Sue Jane 2 2 Tony Sidney 3 3 Ann Rose 4 4 Lou 5 Understanding Relationships If nature relates those mental activities that we call studying to those mental activities that we call learning, then different amounts of learning should occur with different amounts of studying. In other words, there should be a relationship between studying and learning. A relationship is a pattern in which, as the scores on one variable change, the corresponding scores on the other variable change Test Grades in a consistent manner.

Researchers try to create a representative sample by freely allowing the types of individuals found in the population to occur in the sample. To accomplish this, we create a random sample: the individuals in our sample are randomly selected from the population. This means that who gets chosen depends simply on the luck of the draw (like drawing names from a hat). Because we don’t influence which participants are selected, the different types of individuals are free to occur in our sample as they do in the population, so the sample’s characteristics “should” match the population.

Jane is 63 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds, so we place a dot above the height of 63 and opposite the weight of 130. And so on. Each dot on the graph is called a data point. Notice that you read the graph by using the scores on one axis and the data points. For example, to find the weight of the person who has a height of 67, travel vertically from 67 to the data point and then horizontally to the Y axis: 165 is the corresponding weight. In later chapters you will learn when to connect the data points with lines and when to create other types of figures.
