Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale Surveys Measure Discussion One of the most efficient ways to operationally define a dependent variable (the variable that is expected to change as a result of the independent variable) is to use an established and validated survey measure.
An example of such a survey measure is the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale which you can view at http://www.bsos.umd.edu/socy/research/rosenberg.htm
For this week’s Discussion Post, research and choose an existing survey that your Research Team could use to measure your dependent variable. Click the Library tab on the left-hand navigation bar to access PCC’s online database. If you need a refresher, review chapter two of your text
Include the following:
- Your team’s hypothesis: It would take approximately 20 minutes of exercise to reduce stress levels.
- A link or PDF of the survey you chose to measure your dependent variable
Why you chose that survey to measure your dependent variable
- Finally, choose one item from the measure. Comment on how someone might respond to that item based on the cognitive model of survey responding.
