The Correlation coefficient=0.523. This correlation relies on the assumption that the variables are normally distributed, and that there is no presence of outliers. Statistics GPA final N Valid 105 105 Missing 0 0 Skewness -.053 -.334 Std. Error of Skewness .235 .235 Kurtosis -.811 -.334 Std. Error of Kurtosis .468 .468 The table shows that the in the data set, the GPA variable is a left skewed distribution of -.053 and a left kurtosis of -.811. The final variable indicates that the left skewed distribution stands at -.334 and a left kurtosis of -.334. Section 3: Research Question, Hypotheses, and Alpha level Research Question: Is there a relationship between the performance at the GPA and the final? Null Hypothesis: There is no difference between the GPA performance and the final. On the Asymptomatic significance test, the significance level is 0.05.
