Guess the Correlation game

If you think this is a fun game, you just might be a statistics geek :)

Steve Jones reports that he asked the developer (Omar Wagih) to add negative correlations, and heard back that it's in the works. Adding that feature would make this game even more perfect!

Here are two other options I've used for a while. The Rossman collection is generally a great set of applets, and I like their correlation guessing one a lot. I usually have students start with this one, however, because it is a multiple choice system. I make sure they practice both, and often include on the exam both a multiple choice question and an open-ended question (they have to guess within +/- .15 of the true correlation for full credit).
