Exercise template for assessing the interpretation of a randomly-generated scatterplot regarding the joint and marginal distributions.

Name:
scatterplot
Type:
Description:
Scatterplot in an (x, y) regression setup needs to be interpreted regarding location/spread of the marginal distributions, the correlation in the joint distribution, and the corresponding regression slope. Data are drawn randomly from a suitable data-generating process so that each multiple-choice item is either about correct or clearly wrong.
