I received my dissertation back with comments from the dean. He flagged the following text and added the following comments:

"Researcher should review for accurate nomenclature and revise as needed. Specifically, “R” is traditionally used when discussing multiple regression analysis as opposed to simple bivariate correlations “r”, moreover, the value reported .349 is the value of r squared. Researcher should revise as necessary."

This is the text.

p. 98 The regression line is drawn to correspond to the regression analysis completed. R-square is the percent of the dependent variable that is explained by the independent variables. The R2 value is .349 suggesting the line represents 34.9% of the data.

As always, thank you for the help!
