Ashford 2: - Week 1 - Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and
you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your
grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the
depth of your responses. Reference the
Discussion Forum Grading Rubricfor guidance on
how your discussion will be evaluated.
Types of Data
Give an example of a research question that includes an
independent and a dependent variable. These are usually
presented as, "How does A affect B?", where A is your independent
variable and B is your dependent variable. Describe the
independent and dependent variables in terms of whether they are
nominal (also called categorical), ordinal, interval, or ratio
variables (interval or ratio variables are also called continuous
variables). How would you study this research question?
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers that demonstrates thoughtful reflection and analysis of the discussion in relation to their variables and research questions. Were their independent and dependent variables identified correctly? Was the variable type specified well? What would you ask them for further clarification?
