When we work in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS we have to deal with huge amount of data sometimes and such huge amount of data requires handling in different ways. We cannot calculate big equations easily when the data is huge. Calculating complex equations is one of the best features of Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online). However, writing the complete formula is often difficult and it usually does not get the accurate results. Also, it takes a lot of time to write lengthy formulas in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online). Therefore, it is necessary to know the right methods to calculate your desired equations accurately in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online).

R squared determines the correlation between two variables. It is the square of the correlation coefficient ‘r’. There are different formulas in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS which can help us in calculating R squared value. These formulas have been given below in easy-to-use methods. Anyone can find the R squared value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online) using the following methods with any amount of data. So follow the methods given below to find R squared value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online).

Different methods on to find R squared value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online)

## How to find R Squared Value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online) Using ‘CORREL’ Formula

1.Open the Excel/Spreadsheet WPS which contains the data of variables (or the range of data).

2.Now use the CORREL formula as shown in the picture and select the  desired data of variables (or range of data) using which the R value is required to be calculated.

3.After selecting both the ranges of data, press Enter and it will give the value of ‘R’.

4.Now, Square the above value as shown in the picture and it will give the value of R squared.

## How to find R Squared Value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online) Using ‘RSQ’ Formula

1.Open the Excel/Spreadsheet WPS which contains the data of variables (or the range of data).

2.Now use the RSQ formula as shown in the picture and select the desired data of variables (or the range of data).

3.After selecting both the ranges of data, press Enter.

This way you will directly get the value of ‘R squared’ from the desired/selected data (or range of data).

## Formula for R-Squared

### 1. How Do I Find R-Squared in Excel?

To find R-squared in Excel, use the RSQ function, which calculates the coefficient of determination measuring the relationship between dependent and independent variables.

### 2. How Can You Find Adjusted R-Squared in Excel?

To find the adjusted R-squared in Excel, you can use the formula 1 - (1 - R-squared) * ((n - 1) / (n - k - 1)), where R-squared is the coefficient of determination, n is the number of observations, and k is the number of independent variables in the regression model.

### 3. Is R-squared the sole determinant of model quality?

No, R-squared is not the sole determinant of model quality. Other factors, such as model assumptions, variable relevance, and multicollinearity, should also be considered. Metrics like adjusted R-squared, coefficient significance, residual analysis, and domain knowledge contribute to assessing the overall quality of a regression model.

## Summary

This article has covered the simplest ways on How to find R Squared Value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online) using CORREL formula and How to find R Squared Value in Excel/Spreadsheet WPS (2016/2019/Mac/Online) using RSQ formula. You can use these simple steps as explained above and easily find the R squared value in your Excel/Spreadsheet (2016/2019/Mac/Online) whenever required.
