English as a second language reading ability. Refer to the Bilingual Research Journal (Summer 2006) study of the relationship of Spanish (first language) grammatical knowledge to English (second language) reading, Exercise. Recall that three simple linear regressions were used to model the English reading (ESLR) score (y) as a function of Spanish grammar (SG), Spanish reading (SR), and English grammar (EG), respectively.

(a) If the researchers want to predict the ESLR score (y) of a native Spanish-speaking adult who scored x = 50% in Spanish grammar (x), how should they proceed?

(b) If the researchers want to estimate the mean ESLR score, E(y), of all native Spanish speaking adults who scored x = 70% in Spanish grammar (x), how should they proceed?

English as a second language reading ability. What are the factors that allow a native Spanish speaking person to understand and read English? A study published in the Bilingual Research Journal (Summer 2006) investigated the relationship of Spanish (first language) grammatical knowledge to English (second language) reading. The study involved a sample of n = 55 native Spanish-speaking adults who were students in an English as a second language (ESL) college class. Each student took four standardized exams: Spanish grammar (SG), Spanish reading (SR), English grammar (EG), and English reading (ESLR). Simple linear regressions were used to model the ESLR score (y) as a function of each of the other exam scores (x). The results are summarized in the table.

 Independent variable (x) p-value for testing H0: β1 = 0 SG score .739 SR score .012 ER scor e .022

(a) At α = .05, is there sufficient evidence to indicate that ESLR score is linearly related to SG score?

(b) At α = .05, is there sufficient evidence to indicate that ESLR score is linearly related to SR score?

(c) At α = .05, is there sufficient evidence to indicate that ESLR score is linearly related to ER score?

#### Give practical interpretation of correlation coefficient

For the 13 obese young adults, the researchers reported a correlation of r = .50 between baseline and follow-up physical activity, with an associated p-value of .07. Give a

#### What happens to the width of the confidence interval

Examine the widths of the confidence intervals obtained in parts b, c, and d. What happens to the width of the confidence interval for E(y) as the value of x moves away from

#### Explain why the confidence interval for the mean value of y

Explain why the confidence interval for the mean value of y for a particular x-value, say, xp, gets wider the farther xp is from x‾. What are the implications of this phenomen

#### Do you observe a trend

The botanists were interested in the correlation between weight change (y) and digestion efficiency (x). Plot the data for these two variables in a scatterplot. Do you obser

#### Find and interpret the values of r

Find and interpret the values of r and r2 for the simple linear regression relating the blood lactate concentration and the boxer's perceived recovery.

#### Show higher pain related brain activity

Do people scoring higher in empathy show higher pain-related brain activity?'' Use simple linear regression analysis to answer the research question.

#### Is there sufficient evidence to indicate that eslr score

At α = .05, is there sufficient evidence to indicate that ESLR score is linearly related to SG score?- At α = .05, is there sufficient evidence to indicate that ESLR score is

#### Find the estimator of the variance

Learning the mechanics. Suppose you fit a least squares line to nine data points and calculate SSE = .219.- Find s2, the estimator of the variance σ2 of the random error term
