Description: All research questions are about variables and the building blocks of all studies are variables. This unit will help you think about variables in a disciplined and abstract manner regardless of your field of research. We will describe their types, based on several criteria (including level of measurement, role in the study, level of control over variables), and issues that arise when deciding how to measure variables. We will also introduce different terms used for the same basic concepts in different areas of study.
