Explanation : A learner's perspective in a course of
study is not influenced by their family size
or socio-economic background, or their
parents' interest in them. It is the interest
and commitment of the learner, and the prior
knowledge and specific skill of the learner
in the concerned area that influence it.
Explanation : Correlation analysis is a method of statistical
evaluation to establish if there are possible
connections between variables. It studies
the strength of a relationship between two,
numerically measured, continuous variables
(e.g. height and weight).
Explanation : Norm-referenced tests report whether test
takers performed better or worse than a
hypothetical average student, which is
determined by comparing scores against the
performance results of a statistically selected
group of test takers, typically of the same age or
grade level, who have already taken the exam.
Explanation : Process questions are designed to test the
depth of subject knowledge and ability to
analyze how the various components (i.e.
processes) of a system contribute to create the
whole; and are almost always chronological or
linear and involve multiple, sequential steps.
They use cue words like describe, list out,
explain, analyze, and what is the process/
what are the steps, etc. So, process questions
are divergent, concept based, and open.
Content based questions are convergent, fact
based and closed questions.
Explanation : Research Design is the framework of methods
and techniques chosen by a researcher to
carry out the complete process of research
to tackle/handle the research problem.
A research hypothesis is a specific, clear, and
testable proposition or predictive statement
about the possible outcome of a scientific
research study based on a particular property
of a population.
A research paradigm is an approach/
model of research validated and practised
by researchers for long.
