1. Briefly remind us of the two variables in your correlation and the operational definition of each.

2. State the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis (be sure to clearly label each one) for your correlation.

3. Explain what it would mean if we rejected the null hypothesis with an alpha level of .05. Be as specific as you can.

4. Explain the difference between a descriptive statistic and an inferential statistic in the context of your specific study. What does an inferential statistic tell us that a descriptive statistic doesn't tell us?
