Types of Variables for Research Questions
Discuss what types of variables are your variables of interest in your research questions. Chances are you will have more than one research question.
For each variable of interest, address whether the measurement used in existing research is nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio. For each variable of interest, determine if the way it is measured is valid and reliable. How do you know? How will you measure your variable if there’s no consensus on measuring it? Will you develop your own question or method? If so, what will this be? If there is a consensus, what is the consensus? Is it feasible to study these variables for this particular class?
