**confidence interval for a correlation coefficient**is a range of values that is likely to contain a population correlation coefficient with a certain level of confidence.To find a confidence interval for a population correlation coefficient, simply fill in the boxes below and then click the “Calculate” button.

95% C.I. = [0.2502, 0.7658]

You can be 95% confident that the interval [0.2502, 0.7658] contains the true population correlation coefficient.

Could you please explain the computation?

From a point estimate (the sample r) how do you compute the CI without knowing the sampling distribution of r?
