This assignment includes four variables that indicate the students performances on an SPSS exam. You will find the information in the SPSS file named SPSSExam.sav. You can find this file from your resources used in Week 2.

The four variables measured were:

exam (first-year SPSS exam score as a percentage)
computer (measure of computer literacy in percent)
lecture (percentage of SPSS lectures attended)
numeracy (a measure of numerical ability out of 15)
