Hi, I correlated all my study variables, and some of the demographic variables, with each other, to see if there were any significant associations. I found significant correlations between some study variables with demographic variables. For example, let's say I analyzed which type of candy participants like eating the most; and the amount of candy XY eaten correlated with participant's educational status. This would seem like a "spurious" association, as in there would be no obvious explanation why participant's education should be associated to how much of candy XY they eat. My questions: 1) Is it common to to this sort of preliminary correlational analyses to explore associations between variables? 2) Should I report significant correlations, even if they are not part of my study questions/hypotheses? 3) If yes, should I mention these significant correlations as well in my discussion? Or can I simply report them in my results part, and them not mention them anymore in the discussion? Thank you in advance !
So I took the GRE twice, and I'm unsure of which scores to report, since my V improved dramatically and my Q decreased. Take 1: 160Q, 158V, 4.5AW Take 2: 158Q, 164V, 4.5AW I think reporting the second scores would be a no-brainer if I weren't applying to Master's programs in STEM. I got a 76th percentile Q my first time, but 69th percentile my second. And for V, I got 80th percentile my first time, but 94th my second. So...which scores would be better to self-report on my applications? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
