CCGPS CA 4.3.2 Example 1
An education research team is interested in determining if there is a relationship between a student’s vocabulary and how frequently the student reads books.

Is there a linear relationship between the number of books read and test scores? Use the correlation coefficient, r, to explain your answer.
