For this discussion thread, let's review and apply some of the key concepts here...to work together and prepare for the M1A3 assignment. The first 3 questions listed are the same as in my first posting for this week.
1. What is an independent variable?
2. What is a dependent variable?
3. What are extraneous variables?
For M1A3 you are asked to "Identif(y) the correct variables and (discuss) their impact and control of them".
If the hypothesis within the M1A3 scenario is: "high employee satisfaction is correlated with low employee absenteeism"...
4. What is the independent variable?
5. What is the dependent variable?
6. What are possible extraneous variables that might impact the research for this hypothesis?
