General Requirements: Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment: •In a study investigating the effects of humor on memory, Schmidt (1994) 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. • This assignment requires APA style for their writing assignments. •This assignment requires that at least two additional scholarly research sources related to this topic, and at least one in-text citation from each source be included. Directions: In an essay of 500 words, thoroughly address the following items: 1.Define the term independent variable and identify the independent variable for this study. 2.Describe the scale of measurement used for the independent variable. 3.Define the term dependent variable and identify the dependent variable for this study. 4.Describe the scale of measurement used for the dependent variable. 5. Provide an example of a simple study using Schmidt (1994) as a model. State the purpose of the research (Schmidt’s purpose was to examine the effects of humor on memory), the research question (Schmidt's research question was: What are the effects of humor on memory?), the independent variable, and the dependent variable for your study. 6.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

What happened I don't understand. Can you feel me in. I felt bad that the assignment was not completed. Was it my fault?

I got overwhelmed and was not able to complete the revisions. I do apologize that I was not able to make the corrections on time. I hope that you will consider working with me again in the future. The past few weeks have been hectic.
