# Critical values for testing correlation (r^2)

1. The IQ scores of 30 children from under-privileged households, were measured before and a year after, a program of nutritional supplementation was instigated at a primary school. Use a two-tailed test. Is there an effect of nutritional supplementation? Submit your answers on a standard answer sheet.

(e) Given a (alpha) =0.05, what is the critical value of t? (use a two tailed test)

(f) Would an obtained value of t of 2.30 lie within the rejection region?

(g) Does nutritional supplementation affect IQ scores (given that the obtained t =2.30)?

(h) This result would be reported as: t ( ___ ) = _______, p _____ 0.05, r^2=

looking for some steps for e,f,g,h?
