Quantitative Method Of Descriptive Correlation

Please respond to the following post done by Vicki:
BSNA student attributes
My study uses the quantitative method of descriptive correlation. Descriptive correlation studies investigate “relationships between and among variables” without the researcher controlling the environment (Gray, Grove, & Sutherland, 2017, p. 207). The sampling method is a sampling of convenience. Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSNA) students in a northeastern university are chosen to address the study’s purpose. In this study, outcome performance is measured by completion of the program and the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) score on the first attempt. Accelerated nursing students’ demographics (gender, age, ethnicity/race, and English as a second language), admission criteria (preadmission undergraduate Grade Point Average [GPA], science prerequisite grades, Assessment Technologies Institute [ATI®] Test of Essential Academic Skills [TEAS®] scores), and end-of-program characteristics (BSNA program GPA, ATI® Registered Nurse (RN) Comprehensive Predictor® score) may have an impact not only in completing the program, but also on passing the NCLEX-RN® on the first attempt. Demographics are self-reported. This study’s aim is to see if there is a correlation between any of the above BSNA student’s attributes with end of program GPA and NCLEX-RN® score.
I am not completely sure how to write the procedure for my informed consent because most of the information will come from the student’s record. This is what I think.
After you have read this form and agreed to participate, the researcher will ask you to complete a demographic questionnaire which will contain questions such as gender, age, ethnicity/race, and English as a second language. The researcher will then be able to access your records from the time you applied to the program, until after you have taken the NCLEX-RN®. Information from your file such as admission criteria (preadmission undergraduate GPA, science prerequisite grades, ATI® TEAS® score), and end-of-program characteristics (BSNA program GPA, ATI® RN Comprehensive Predictor® score) will be used for this research. In addition, your final cumulative GPA for the program and your NCLEX-RN® score will be reviewed, recorded, and, used for research
