Im not sure about 2 questions but I feel like i'm just overthinking it I missed the 2 weeks when we did Spearmans rank.

a. The value of spearman's rank correlation coefficient between two oral tests is +0.76. Explain what this value shows.

b. The value of spearman's rank correlation coefficient between two written tests is -0.06. Explain what this value shows.

Would I be correct in thinking that a. just means that there is a fairly strong correlation/relationship between the tests and b. is fairly weak?
