ACT Scores

the scatter plot dependent variable on y axis, independent on x axis


Pearsons r = 0.88 a strong direct correlation on GPA by ACT scores
coefficient of correlation = R = 0.78 a strong effect on shared variation

Can conclude that there is a strong direct relationship between ACT scores and the
students GPA and that approximately 78% of the shared variation in GPA can be
explained by ACT scores
