Research project | Social Science homework help

I have been assigned to complete a pseudo research project in my applied research class.  this research project is broken into 4 components of which I have completed the first 2.  I am not sure how to complete this third component and would like some assistance.  I will post the general assignment and if it is something that someone can do in the timeframe that is due i can send the asssignment I have completed thus far.  This is component 3 or 4:


This is the third component of the research project for this course. In this section of the research project, you need to outline in detail the main concepts/variables that will be used in your survey in order to answer your research question. Please specify what your dependent and independent variables are and how they will be operationalized

(You do not have to write the survey questions yet, just think what kind of questions might be appropriate to operationalize your main concepts). This part of the research project should be up to 3 pages (double-spaced) in length.


Specifically, you need to answer the following questions:

1.What is the dependent variable of your analysis and how is it operationalized? Please indicate if this variable is nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio.

2. What are the independent (explanatory) variables and how are they operationalized? (You might have one main explanatory variable or many explanatory variables). Please indicate if these variables are

nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio.

3. Identify the control variables and how they are operationalized (i.e., other variables that might affect the behavior of the dependent variable that were not selected among the main variables of the study)


In general, these variables are associated with alternative explanations of the effect that you study and you should control for their effect. Please indicate for each of these variables if it is nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio.
