Inference for correlations

I’m currently updating my course materials, aimed at undergraduate students in psychology, for next academic year.  Since the text book is lacking a (thorough) description on how to do inference (hypothesis testing and confidence interval construction) for the product-moment correlation coefficient, I’ve written something myself.

It might be useful for someone else who feels that the text books aimed at social sciences students are lacking this information (and the text books aimed at mathematics students are too technical for other students), so I’ve put a copy here. Feel free to use it.
