The researcher randomly selects a sample of nine first‐year college students. Participants are asked to rate their current level of stress on a 1–10 scale, with 1 = no stress and 10 = extreme stress. They are then given a short story to read and a 15‐item comprehension test upon completion of the story. Stress levels and test scores are listed below.

In fantasy baseball, groups of pretend owners conduct a draft in which they can “buy” baseball players to fill out their roster for an upcoming season. These made‐up teams are then compared based on the individual performance of each team member of each team. At the end of the season, team winners are declared based on the cumulative performance of the roster of players. This practice has become quite popular – and many leagues of friends have stayed together for 20 years or more. Because of some small rule differences between the two leagues within professional baseball, players drafted from National League teams tend to have better defensive numbers, while players drafted from American League teams tend to have better offensive numbers. This opens the door to an interesting question: Is there an advantage to drafting players from one league or the other (all other things being equal) in a fantasy league situation? One way to look at this issue might be to see which made‐up teams have won the fantasy league in the past – teams with predominantly National League players or teams with predominantly American League players. If we had access to this data, describe a methodological situation that would employ the following analytical tools.A. A chi‐square goodness‐of‐fit testB. A point‐biserial correlationC. A Spearman rank correlation.
