She defined time-on-task as the total duration of CAI module utilization, as assessed by the microcomputer's internal real time clock. The scale for measurement of the independent variable for this research (time-on-task) would best be classified as:<BR> </P> <CENTER> <SELECT NAME="ITEM1" SIZE=5> <OPTION SELECTED> No Response <OPTION> Nominal <OPTION> Ordinal <OPTION> Interval <OPTION> Ratio </SELECT> </CENTER> <BR> <HR> <P> <B>Item 2:</B><BR> A statistical concept which provides a measure of the degree of peakedness of a distribution is the:<BR> </P> <CENTER> <SELECT NAME="ITEM2" SIZE=1> <OPTION SELECTED> Choose Option <OPTION> Median <OPTION> Standard Deviation <OPTION> Variance <OPTION> Kurtosis </SELECT> </CENTER> <BR> <HR> <H3> <CENTER> Use the following information for questions 3 through 9. </CENTER> </H3> <P> In an effort to facilitate the long term cardiovascular health of a small group of heart patients who have been recuperating from coronary bypass operations, the therapeutic team has patients participate in a patient education program. The program is designed to help patients implement effective dietary and exercise efforts to improve cardiovascular risk factors. As a first step, a written pretest is administered to get an initial picture of patients' knowledge of issues pertinent to cardiovascular risk factors. It is important to obtain a number of descriptive measures on the pretest in order to get an overall assessment of the patients to be used for diagnostic purposes and for later comparison with posttest scores after the program has been in effect. Patients' scores on the pretest are recorded in a frequency distribution as indicated in the table below. </P> <PRE> X f 8 2 7 2 6 3 5 4 4 5 3 2 1 2 _____ 20 = N </PRE> <HR> <P> <B>Item 3:</B><BR> The frequency distribution above is a: </P> <INPUT TYPE="RADIO" CHECKED NAME="ITEM3" > No response<BR> <INPUT TYPE="RADIO" NAME="ITEM3" VALUE="Positively skewed distribution"> Positively skewed distribution<BR> <INPUT TYPE="RADIO" NAME="ITEM3" VALUE="Negatively skewed distribution"> Negatively skewed distribution<BR> <INPUT TYPE="RADIO" NAME="ITEM3" VALUE="Normal distribution"> Normal distribution<BR> <INPUT TYPE="RADIO" NAME="ITEM3" VALUE="Symmetric distribution"> Symmetric distribution<BR> </CENTER> <BR> <P> <B>Item 4:</B><BR> What is the cumulative frequency of a score of 7 in the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM4" SIZE=3></PRE> </CENTER> <P> <B>Item 5:</B><BR> What is the relative frequency of a score of 8 in the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM5" SIZE=3></PRE> </CENTER> <B>Item 6:</B><BR> What is the relative cumulative frequency of a score of 7 in the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM6" SIZE=3></PRE> </CENTER> <P> <B>Item 7:</B><BR> What is the mean of the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM7" SIZE=4></PRE> </CENTER> <P> <B>Item 8:</B><BR> What is the median of the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM8" SIZE=4></PRE> </CENTER> <P> <B>Item 9:</B><BR> What is the mode of the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM9" SIZE=3></PRE> </CENTER> <P> <B>Item 10:</B><BR> What is the range of the distribution above? </P> <CENTER> <PRE>Answer: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="ITEM10" SIZE=3></PRE> </CENTER> <HR> <CENTER> <INPUT TYPE="RESET" VALUE="Clear Entries"> </CENTER> </STRONG> </FORM> </BODY> </HTML> ```
