m02 discussion writing a hypothesis

Visit this Science Buddies (Links to an external site.) site and study up on how to write a hypothesis. Then follow the instructions below for writing your own hypothesis in the discussion board.

Instructions: Please write a measurable hypothesis on any research topic as if you were going to study the problem. For example “Students who study each night will get higher scores on their mid-term exams than students who only study the night before the mid-term exam.” (A hypothesis like “children who are not disciplined will become criminals” is not a measurable hypothesis. It could be made measurable by stating it: “Incarcerated individuals answering the XX questionnaire will be more likely than non-incarcerated respondents to state that they received permissive discipline when they were growing up.”) Students with greater understanding or experience with hypothesis statements, please help those with less experience!
