Since you are interested in how well one variable acts as a linear predictor of another, which of the following tests should you perform:

a. t-test
b. ANOVA
c. correlation
d. regression
e. multiple regression

Perform the comparison you selected in the item above. Select only the appropriate one(s). What was the result of your calculations?

a = 9.92

b =  -.49

r =

t =

F =

 If a client has 10 sessions with you, what would you predict their happiness to be?  5.05

Within what boundaries is this estimate accurate?   Plus or minus 2.62.

Note: If happiness predicted sessions, than a = 9.92, b = -.52 and standard error of estimate = 2.81.
