Question description

Weekly tasks or assignments (Individual or Group Projects) will be due by Monday and late submissions will be assigned a late penalty in accordance with the late penalty policy found in the syllabus. NOTE: All submission posting times are based on midnight Central Time.

You're in a brainstorming session at WidgeCorp, where no idea is too outrageous. You're discussing penetration in the school lunch market. Ideas around school lunch subsidies, Internet subsidies, and Internet target marketing are being discussed. As the end of the meeting, the group asks you to prove or disprove some assumptions by looking at correlations.

First, acquaint yourself with the Internet subsidy issue by reading the article Closing the Digital Divide: Internet Subsidies in Public Schoolsby Austan D. Goolsbee and Jonathan Guryan

Next, download the Variable comparison chart. Based on the findings as reported in this article, prepare a chart similar to the one in the downloaded file to indicate if the correlation between Variables A and B were found to be positive, negative, or minimal.

In your own words, explain what it means if the correlation of 2 variables is positive, negative, or minimal (close to 0) and give an example of each.

variable a

Number of school lunch eligible students in the school

Number of classrooms connected to the Internet

Teachers’ comfort level with the Internet

Variable B

Amount of funding received by the school for federal and state education-related programs

Age of students at school

Student performance, as measured by standardized test scores

Ability of teachers to use Internet effectively with their students

Correlation: positive, negative, minimal?
