Pearson's Correlation Coefficient (r)

Incorrect. While correlation is a useful tool for describing the relationship between 2 paired variables it does not serve as a test of our hypothesis.

Correlation is used to describe to what degree pairs of data are related. For example, correlation could be used to describe the relationship between education level and attitudes toward homosexuals, but not to test a specific hypothesis about this relationship.
