PART ONE
Multiple regression is identified as an extension of simple linear regression. Multiple regression
is used when predicting the value of a variable when two or more other variables are involved in
the analysis. The predicted variable is the dependent variable or the outcome. In this analysis, I
selected the High School Longitudinal Study dataset. The research question selected for the
analysis is; “Can student’s mathematics self-efficacy be predicted based on the parent’s highest
educational level and the years a math teacher has taught high school math?” To analyze our
research question, the dependent variable selected was “student’s mathematics selfefficacy” while the independent variables were, “parent’s highest educational level” and “years
a math teacher has taught high school math.”
Multiple regression, in this case, will be significant in predicting if the independent variables
have an impact on the dependent variable (Allison, 1999).
From the first table, an indication of the descriptive statistics of the variables identified from the
study has been included. A second table is an indication of the correlation coefficient value of
the variables. For instance, from the table, there is a low correlation value of .135 based on
“student’s mathematics self-efficacy�...
