Draft of Operational Definitions
Your final prospectus project is due in Module 7. Considering the multivariate analysis design you plan to use in your prospectus, turn in a draft of the following section:
- Operational definitions of variables in study
In general, this section should provide a clear description of:
- Your IVs: What they are and how you are going to create different levels/conditions.
- Your DVs: Measurement techniques/instruments, their demonstrated reliability, validity, scoring and the meaning of scores, and so on.
Prepare the draft paper in Microsoft Word. The length of the draft paper may vary depending on the number and types of IVs and DVs. Name the file R7034_M4_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc and submit it to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
Note: This draft submission will not be graded. However, your facilitator will provide you with feedback on your drafts. Incorporate the feedback into your final prospectus before you submit it in Module 7.
