  • 1. ISA <ul><li>The nature and type of variables in investigation skills assessments. </li></ul>28 January 2011
  • 2.  
  • 3. A student obtained these results while doing an investigation to determine the possible link between the number of primary and secondary turns and the output voltage and power output of a transformer.
  • 4. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 5. Independent variable
  • 6. What is the nature of the variable is shown in this column?
  • 7. This is a discrete variable – (whole number of turns)
  • 8. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 9. Independent variable – also discrete (whole numbers of turns.)
  • 10. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 11. Independent variable, This one is continuous (can take any value).
  • 12. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 13. Dependent variable – this one is continuous – can take any value.
  • 14. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 15. Dependent variable – this one is a categoric variable– its value is described in words.
  • 16. A student obtained these results while doing an investigation to determine the possible link between the pH (acidity) of water used on germinating cress seeds and their growth and colour.
  • 17. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 18. This is a control variable – to ensure this is a fair test.
  • 19. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 20. This is an independent variable – it is also a continuous variable
  • 21. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 22. This is a dependent variable – it is also a continuous variable.
  • 23. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 24. This is a dependent variable – it is also a category variable.
  • 25.  
  • 26.  
  • 27. A student obtained these results while doing an investigation to determine the strength of a concrete block as the percentage cement in the mix varies.
  • 28. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 29. Independent variable – This is also a continuous variable – any value of cement could be taken
  • 30. What type of variable is shown in this column?
  • 31. Dependent variable – The value is discrete because only multiples of 10N were available
