Welcome – From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Psychology Portal! The Psychology collection provides access to nearly 20 different types of materials (including online texts and online courses) across 15 psychology disciplines. The MERLOT Psychology Editorial Board manages the collection and oversees a peer review process that evaluates the applicability of the materials within the collection. We invite you to explore all that our collection has to offer. Our Board strives to review every Learning Object (LO) submitted for review. We have a multi-level review process for each LO, and use a standardized review form in assessing all LOs submitted to the Psychology collection.

Guess the Correlation

Overview:Guess the correlation is a web based game, where students can play as either a single player or against another player (Firefox and Chrome browsers only). Users guess the correlation (positive correlations only) based on scatterplots provided. Feedback is given in the form of how far the guess is from the actual correlation. 

This is an interesting exercise and good practice for students to learn how to “eyeball” the data and appreciate what various correlations look like.
