    Does anybody have the paper asking to test if normal distrubtion is a suitable distrubtion?

    I haven't seen a question like this, have you come across one where they've used ranks to calculate PMCC? Textbook and past paper questions only use the data itself to calculate PMCC.

    Yh, but then ranking would be pointless wouldn't it. Ie you would go straight to the pmcc without ranking.

    Okay, now I'm confused. Once we have a tie, we average the ranks and calculate the PMCC using only the ranks?

    So if they've given data which they've asked to calculate SPCC and then part b for example says 2 ranks are now tied, use PMCC, would we calculate Sxx, Syy, Sxy using the ranks (including the now tied rank)?

    If you are calculating spearmans rank and two units have the same rank, you take an average of that rank and the next and then use PMCC. How would you use PMCC if the data is ranked/ordinal?
    What do you mean by "take an average of that rank and the next"?

    yes

    eg sxx = sum of x^2 - (sum of x)^2 /n , where x is the rank, not the data

    then multiply the 2 ranks as per for sxy

    ranking it and using spearman is quick but less accurate. i thought you do the pmcc u just calculate it from raw data, i might be wrong since im **** at stats.

    Yep, but I doubt the case will arise.

    Yes, June 15. You had to explain why, but you didn't actually have to combine it yourself which was what I was talking about.
