1.Identify one independent variable from the selected research question.

2.Indicate how the independent variable identified in #1 could be measured (conceptualize, operationalize, and describe the level of measurement for this variable).

3.Identify one dependent variable from the selected research question.

4.Indicate how the dependent variable identified in #3 could be measured (conceptualize, operationalize, and describe the level of measurement for this variable).

5.Express the research question in a measureable hypothesis statement (ensure that the hypothesis statement includes the independent variable and the dependent variable you identified in items 1 and 2 above). Use the following structure to help formulate your answer:

____ with ____ are more/less likely to ____ than ___ without ______

(subjects) with (independent variable) are more/less likely to (dependent variable) than (subjects) without (independent variable)
