- Research measurements
- Dependent variables
- Independent variables

Q3 | A factorial design is one in which____.

- Only one independent variable is studied to determine its effect on the dependent variable
- Only two independent variables are simultaneously studied to determine their independent and interactive effects on the dependent variable
- Two or more independent variables are simultaneously studied to determine their independent and interactive effects on the dependent variable
- Two dependent variables are studied to determine their interactive effects

Q4 | A researcher is interested in the effects of a preschool program on later school performance. Because she is concerned that socio-economic-status (SES) is a potential extraneous variable in her study, she picks^&tyldren to study who are only from low SES homes. The control technique she used in this study was- ----

- Matching

Q5 | The directors of a graduate program in educational research wish to see what types of jobs their graduates take after they finish their program. They randomly sample students from the program and have them fill out questionnaires with items asking about the types of jobs they have had. They also are asked to describe the roles they play in their current positions. This project is best described as having what kind of objective—-

- Predictive
- Explanatory

Q6 | The variable the researcher matches to eliminate it as an alternative explanation is called a_________variable.

- Matching
- Independent
- Dependent
