## Correlation Coefficient

Three pages of notes on how to calculate Spearman’s Rank Correlation Coefficient [ PDF, 70Kb ]

Written on the Asus EeePC before I gave it back today. We cover the basic calculation of the standard deviation for ungrouped data and the Spearman’s coefficient in our Access level 2 Maths units so that psychology (and science) students have seen these calculations when they take the usual quantitative methods course at their respective Universities.

The hope is less worry about the mechanics and more time to think about what the statistics actually *mean* next year.
