Feet make you smarter? (Posted on 2002-09-03) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Researchers have found that statistically, there is a direct positive relationship between students' shoe sizes and their results on spelling tests and spelling bees. (That is, students with larger shoe sizes tend to do better.)

Can you explain this correlation?

Maybe they were spelling words that appeared on shoes.

The kids with bigger feet have out-grown more pairs of shoes and so would know the names of more shoes.
