Textbook Problem

Weinstein, McDermott, and Roediger (2010) conducted an experiment to evaluate the effectiveness of different study strategies. One part of the study asked students to prepare for a test by reading a passage. In one condition, students generated and answered questions after reading the passage. In a second condition, students simply read the passage a second time. All students were then given a test on the passage material and the researchers recorded the number of correct answers.

**a.**Identify the dependent variable for this study.**b.**Is the dependent variable discrete or continuous ?**c.**What scale of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio) is used to measure the dependent variable?

**a.**

To determine

**To Find:** The dependent variable in the given study.

Explanation

**Given info:**

A researcher wants to compare the effectiveness of the reading. One part of the study the passage and ready for the test with the condition of the before generating and answering question they studied the passage. In other condition, simply read the passage. All students were given a test on the material and researchers recorded the number of correct answers...

**b.**

To determine

**To Find:** Is the dependent variable is discrete or continuous.

**c.**

To determine

**To Find:** The scale of measurement used for the dependent variable.
