    Hi

    I am trying to analyse my data for my dissertation. Its about exlicit correction. The learners were given a test and after 6 hours of teaching they were given the same test again. I need to see if there is a strong relationship between explicit correction and learning. I have been trying for days to work out this using pearson's correlation coefficient..but no luck!
    Test one score were out of 24

    8, 9, 8, 9, 6, 10, 7, 6

    Test two

    15, 13, 13, 15, 10, 16, 11, 10

    Can anyone give me any advice? I am really stuck..maybe I have totally got it wrong

    Just to clarify, when you say pearson's correlation coefficient, you do mean the PMCC? r= Sxy / root(Sxx*Syy)
    Were you told to use this?

    Is test two after the 6 hours of teaching?

    Is a paired t-test more appropriate? Have you studied this?
    Since the learners have been tested twice and you're looking at the before and after affect?
