identify the independent and dependent variable

A group of college students were given a short course in speed-reading. The instructor was curious if a monetary incentive would influence performance on a reading test taken at the end of the course. Half the students were offered $5 for obtaining a certain level of performance on the test, the other half were not offered money.

An **independent variable** is the potential stimulus or cause, usually directly manipulated by the experimenter, so it could also be called a manipulative variable.

A **dependent variable** is the response or measure of results.

Does the offering of a reward effect test performance?
