The Relationship of Canonical Correlation Analysis to Other Parametric Methods.
Arnold, Margery E.
This paper demonstrates some characteristics that all parametric statistics have in common, using the general linear model as a framework and emphasizing that canonical correlation analysis is the general linear model. Four characteristics of the general linear model are delineated and explained using a program for the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). This program can be duplicated by statistics students and used to teach the concept of the general linear model. More importantly, the characteristics of the general linear model can be used to teach students about the interrelationships between all parametric statistics. Students taught this way can integrate the information about the specific models into the framework of the general model. In this manner, the learning of statistics becomes less of a chore of memorizing confusion and more of an adventure in learning and thinking. An appendix presents a program for the SPSS. (Contains 16 tables and 14 references.) (Author/SLD)
