General Requirements – Identifying Variables:

 

In a study investigating the effects of humor on memory, Schmidt showed participants a list of sentences, half of which were humorous and half were non-humorous. Schmidt found that participants consistently recalled more of the humorous sentences than the non-humorous sentences, demonstrating that the use of humor increased participants’ recall of sentences.

·       Identify the independent & dependent variable(s) for this study.

·       Describe the scale of measurement used for the independent variable.
