A correlation between two variables can be put into the form of an equation using the r symbol for the correlation coefficient: UÑWhen r = 0, the two variables are completely unrelated. UÑWhen r > 0, the variables are positively related; when one increases the other does also, as in the children’s height and weight example. UÑWhen r < 0, the variables are inversely related; when one increases the other decreases, as in the example of children’s aggression and popularity. Thus, a relationship between the two variables is established, but still without assigning cause and effect.

Such a study could theoretically come up with a finding of cause and effect between TV violence and a child’s level of aggression on the school playground. Similarly, when digesting a cross-sectional study of children in different age groups, it’s important to find out whether researchers have accounted for any major environmental differences (divorce, urban/rural, family move, family size) that may affect the participating children and change the study results. A result is regarded as statistically significant if it is unlikely to have occurred by chance; but significant does not mean important.

Creating a standardized setting—room in a school. 3. Manipulating an independent variable—study with windows and study without windows. 4. Measuring a dependent variable—scores on a test. 5. Comparing results—students with open windows scored higher. 6. Conclusion—open windows enhance studying. Confounding Variables But what if there was an unknown factor contributing to the better performance of the students tested in the classroom with windows? Let’s say, for example, several of the participants had come from gym class where they’d run around the track four times.
