    Correct

    What can you conclude from this output from a linear regression analysis of GRE scores and grades that results in the following data: the slope coefficient (B) for GRE scores is .037 with a significance level of .018?

    Selected Answer:

    You should reject the null hypothesis, and accept the alternative hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between GRE scores and grades because the p-value is less than .05.

    Answers:

    You should reject the null hypothesis, and accept the alternative hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between GRE scores and grades because the p-value is less than .05.

    You should reject the null hypothesis, and accept the alternative hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between GRE scores and grades because the standard error is less than 1.0.

    You should accept the null hypothesis and reject the alternative hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between GRE scores and grades because the p-value is less than .05.
