Lecture 3 establishing a manageable question

Lecture3: Establishing a Manageable Question


Objectives at the conclusion of this module students will

Articulate an important practical issue important to researchers addressing motor behavior or exercise physiology

Describe the difference between a “big, practical question” and a “manageable question” worthy of experimental investigation

Identify independent variables (IV) that could be used to construct a manageable question

Identify dependent variables (DV) that could be used to construct a manageable question

Construct a manageable question using IV and DV identified in # 3 and 4

Construct a hypothesis using IV and DV identified in # 3 and 4

Articulate the relationship between a “Practical Summary” and a manageable question in a transition statement

You should be able to articulate the expected findings in the form of a hypothesis


Would the hypothesisbesupported or rejectedbased on these data?


This leads to the transition statement that

describes the big picture or issue in a sentence or two.

briefly highlights the current beliefs or the “here is what we know” section in a sentence or two.

highlights the shortcoming you have identified or the “here is what we don’t know” section in a sentence or two.

describes how you will handle this shortcoming with your experiment or the “here is what we plan to do” section (IV and DV). As brief as possible.

describes what you anticipate will happen in your experiment or your hypothesis (the figure you expect).As brief as possible.

This leads to the transition statement that
