  1. Each row contains the results from a linear regression with scores from a different evolution acceptance instrument as the dependent variable, indicated by the row heading. Each coefficient statistic indicates the extent to which evolution understanding scores independently predicted evolution acceptance scores. Each adjusted R2 value indicates the amount of variance in evolution acceptance scores that can be explained by evolution understanding scores alone
