#### Assignment Instructions

For this assignment, complete the following in a one-page, APA-formatted paper:

1. Refer to the JASP Tutorial Video: Bivariate Regression (given in the Resources). Conduct a bivariate regression with the outcome variable (Y) as self-reported anxiety and the predictor variable (X) as length of meditation.
2. Provide JASP output for the model summary (R-square), the F-test (testing if R-square is significantly different from 0), Coefficients (intercept and unstandardized coefficient), and descriptives (mean and standard deviation for the predictor and outcome).
3. Using the "H1" output, identify the intercept (that is, when X = 0 . . . in other words, mean anxiety level for 0 minutes of meditation) and the unstandardized beta (that is, change in Y as the predictor increases 1 unit . . . increases by 1 minute of meditation).
4. Provide a summary paragraph of the results of the regression analysis and implications for funding the meditation program.
