categories were at least interval data; for instance, the math test had a score from 0 to 20 points.
There were no perfect linear relationships, and the data had variation with no predictor variations
of zero. The data have a relatively normal distribution supported by the values (see Table 12)
that have only one kurtotic values greater than absolute one (Neill, 2008). The data were
reviewed and both tolerance and Variance Inflation Factor (VIF) are in the region of one,
diminishing the probability of multicollinearity (Foster et al., 2006) (see Table 13). Scatter plots
were examined to view data for possible curvilinear distributions (see Figure 6). None of the
plots appear curvilinear. With low probability of multicollinearity and with these values of
skewness and kurtosis, no transformations were deemed necessary.
