¶ … articles that I faxed over. I don't understand it at all. Question number 1 had ask to list at least 3 variables that interest you at this point. List 3 possible operational definitions of each of these variables (from the articles)

Question number 2 was do you have any hypotheses (2-tailed) related to any of these variables? List 3 possible hypotheses. (from the articles)

Question number 3 was to give at least 3 references (journals articles, empirical research) related to any one (or all) of these variables. (from the articles)

Question number 1-3 had to come from the articles that I send you.

Number 4 is perfect (really like it) and thanks for picking two excellent articles for me.


Question #1:

List at least 3 variables that interest you at this point. List 3 possible operational definitions for each of these variables.

Definition: Variable: an event or behavior that can assume two or more values. (i.e., temperature = hot + cold along with all variations in between)

Variable #1: Exercise

Variable Type:

Example of Independent and Dependent variables.

Independent Variable: the variable is manipulated by an experimenter.

Dependent Variable: The experiment seeks to determine the effect of the independent variable.

The independent variable is typically manipulated by the experimenter; the effects of the independent variable on the dependent variable are measured.

Variable #2: U.S. Census

Variable Type: example of Discrete and Continuous Variables.

Definitions: Discrete: Variable with possible scores of discrete points on the scale. Continuous: Variable where the scale is continuous and not made up of discrete steps.

Variable #3: Religion

Variable Type: example of Qualitative and Quantitative Variables (Variables that express a qualitative attribute):

Three other Variable Types (random and not specified):

a. Personality. Examples: Scientific, Indifferent, Artistic

b. Beauty. Examples: Pretty, Ugly, Plain

c. Temperature. Examples: Hot, Cold, Tepid

Operationally Defining Variables

Operational Definitions: researchers define variables by the operations used to produce them. (Smith, Randolph A. Davis, Stephen F. The Psychologist as Detective. Pearson Education, Inc. 2004).
