**Item 1:**

A biomedical researcher wanted to find out the degree to
which time-on-task in learning and practicing medical
terminology using a tutorial CAI module influenced students'
performance on a subsequent medical terminology test. 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:

**Item 2:**

A statistical concept which provides a measure of the degree
of peakedness of a distribution is the:

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.
