Determine Rank Correlation Coefficient

A group of 8 accountancy students are tested in Quantitative Techniques and Law II.  Their rankings in the two tests were as:

Student

Q. T. ranking

Law II ranking

Σd2 = 22

d = Q. T. ranking - Law II ranking

R = 1 - {(6Σd2)/(n(n2 -1))}

1 -{(6(22))/(8(82 -1))} = 0.74

Hence we conclude that there is a reasonable agreement among student's performances in the two types of tests.

NOTE: in this illustration, if we are given the actual marks then we find r.  R varies between -1 and +1.
