Question

create 2 **different** types of questions for each
and Explain **what type of response scale it is (nominal,
ordinal, interval, or ratio and why it is nominal, ordinal, and a
ratio**

**1) Undergraduate major**

**2) Favorite type of music**

**3) year in college**

**4) expected course grade**

Answer #1

1) Undergraduate major - This would be measured in a nominal scale

Whether a person is an undergraduate major

**Yes** or **No**

**Because,** the person can either hold a degree or
not. There is no other measurement for it. Therefore due to only
these 2 categories of measurement, it is a nominal scale.

2) Favourite type of music - **Ordinal** scale

Variable measurements can be applied to subjective categories of different types of music in order to measure which type is more favourite. Hence Ordinal scale can be applied here.

3) Year in college - **Interval** scale

4) Expected course grade - **Ratio**

Due to statistical comparison between different grades expected , a ratio scale can be applied here

create 2 different types of questions for each
and describe what type of response scale it is (nominal,
ordinal, interval, or ratio) and list the properties of that scale
(difference, magnitude, equal intervals, true zero).
1)Favorite Course
2) Time spent Studying
3) GPA

Are these the correct data scales?

For each variable, determine the scale of measurement (nominal,
ordinal, interval, or ratio) and the type of variable (categorical
or numerical); if it is numerical is it discrete or continuous?
Justify your decision for each one
What school did the participant attend?
What is the highest level of education for the participants
parent?
Is the participant a female or not?
What is the annual income for the participant's household?
What is the participant's math outcome score?

Scenario 1: To describe the instructors’
experience, the researcher records the year in which each
instructor began teaching online: 2007, 2011, and 2016.
1. What are the cases in this study? Explain
What is the type of the variable that describes each
instructor’s experience in this scenario (categorical ordinal,
categorical nominal, quantitative interval, quantitative ratio)?
Explain.
What are the values of this variable?
Scenario 5: Each student earns a letter
grade.
1. What are the cases in this study? Explain...

2.
Classify each of the following as to the level of measurement
(nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio).
(a)
the year of the last presidential election
(b)
your T-shirt size (S, M, L, XL)
(c)
the length of time it takes you to travel to the FHSU campus
(d)
favorite M & M color

Provide an example of each of the levels of measurement:
1. Nominal: They are used as names/labels, for example hair
color, gender, favorite food.
2. Ordinal: They are used to show significance. For example, a
scale that says how happy are you ranging from “Upset to Very
Happy”.
3. Interval: A scale where each value knows the order and the
difference between each value. For example, the temperature, there
is a measurable 10-degree difference between 50 and 60
degrees.
