Developing research questions, hypotheses and supporting variables requires practice. In practicing for the final paper in this course, each student is to quickly identify, from an open source article, a research question that is discussed, a hypothesis put forth, and variables identified by an author.
Read “ Filling the Global Energy Research Gap,” by Andrew Revkin. In 250 to 300 words, identify a hypothesis put forth in the article and at least two variables that are found in the article, and then explain how they are measured. Consider using the chart as a method for identifying variables as well.
