We are all learning to identify independent and dependent variables and working hypotheses, and to statistically measure if a change in the independent variable causes a change in the dependent variable. Summarize your own research proposal, including your independent and dependent variables.
- What GSS survey items did you select?
- Was it difficult to come up with a workable hypothesis? What problems did you have?
- Have you tried inputting your variables in the GSS statistical site yet? (If yes, do you have any tips for other students?)
- Have you started your literature review yet?
- Do you have any tips to share with classmates about their research project, in general?
