Define the correlations, Mathematics

A retention counselor at a state university believes that freshman year success is related to high school standard tests in math and reading, and in the number of credits the student completed in high school. Therefore, the counselor randomly selects a group of 39 freshmen. She obtains their reading and math test scores from high school and the number of high school credits completed. She then records their GPAs at the end of their freshman year.

Create a correlation matrix of all of the variables (math, reading, high school credits and GPA). Cut and paste your SPSS output into a Word document. Following APA style, create an appropriate table displaying the correlations then briefly discuss the findings in this study.
