There have been threads here before which posted links of the media attributing causality to correlational studies, and links to those studies have been posted. It seems as if we are always focusing on showing students how to identify correlations and not to confuse it with causality.
We are missing something important in the process though: Some students assume afterwards that causality can never be inferred, and absolutely everything is a correlation!
Does anyone have any links to studies in the media which actually DO show causal links?
Student understanding of the difference between correlation/causation in studies reported by journalists, can only be inferred when "causal relationship" sometimes is actually the correct answer.
