In this case, the data obtained from the student data file containing the BS GPA’s and the MBA GPA’s. One then determines which will be the X and Y axis. This step is important because a person needs to know which is the dependent variable as well as the independent variable. They X is the BS GPA’s; the independent variable is used to predict. The Y is the MBA GPA’s; the dependent variable what a person is trying to predict or the outcome to verify the relationship between one another. The data then auto populates, except for the predicting with the regression equation. A person enters the X value. Making predictions about a regression model approach require caution. Never plug in an X value that is outside of the range of data (Mirabella, 2011). A person then types the number 3.50 inside the cell since the value of 3.50 is given in the question. One can also come up with this number by doing an average of the GPA’s. After doing these entries, one can begin to answer the issue of the correlation coefficient and how strong it is. The correlation coefficient is .925 meaning a very high relationship between X and Y. Correlations in the .70 to .99 are considered reliable (Mirabella, 2011). The data is furthered supported by the Scattered Diagram. All the points from the BS and MBA GPA’s cluster around the same area forming a linear line.…

HR has evolved over the years and has now become more of a strategic partner rather than the sole purpose of recruitment, hiring, and termination.

Neither are anywhere close to perfectly predicting any scenario, but there are times where one produces a mostly accurate estimation of the future. Each strategy has its strengths and weaknesses, which Silver…
