Question : 31.  A synonym for bivariate correlations is a.  test of association. b.  : 1991647

31.  A synonym for bivariate correlations is

a.  test of association.

b.  path analysis.

c.  zero order correlation.

d.  scatter diagram.

32.  When you try to predict the value of an outcome variable from several variables, you are likely to be using

a.  multiple regression.

b.  the Pearson product-moment correlation.

c.  the analysis of variance.

d.  heterogeneous subgroups.

33.  Psychologists Todd and Worrell (2000) investigated why some women are more resilient than others, recovering from adversity well.  They found that important variables included the number of problematic people in their lives and how the women compared themselves to others around them.  In predicting resilience from the number of problematic people around the women and how the women evaluate others around them, the appropriate data analysis would involve

a.  the Pearson product-moment correlation.

b.  multiple regression.

c.  analysis of variance.

d.  tests of association.

34. Klibert et al. (2011) studied zero-order correlations between personality traits like procrastination and achievement motivation and a college student’s proneness to suicide. Results indicated that

a. personality traits are not associated with suicide proneness.

b. these traits are predictive of suicidal proneness only for non-students of college age.

c. such correlations are significant predictors of suicide, but the predictive ability of the variables is quite low.

d. these variables are significantly related to suicide proneness but not as strongly as lack of parental warmth is.

35. Compared to zero-order correlations between personality traits and risk of suicide, researchers have used multivariate approaches and found that multiple regression

a. complicates the overall assessment of the relation between personality traits and risk of suicide.

b. has led to useful models regarding factors associated with risk of suicide.

c. has led to identification of factors associated with risk of suicide but not to factors associated with student willingness to seek therapy.

d. revealed that there were no important differences in willingness to seek therapy across racial or ethnic groups.

36.  The research showing that people who watch violent television and movies also engage in more aggressive behavior involves

a.  confirmation bias.

b.  unstable predictor variables.

c.  correlational studies.

d.  heterogeneous subgroups.
