What variable do you want to select? Easier ones might involve heights or ages of students in your class to use as a sample for your college population.

In this assignment, you have to decide what you are going to measure and make your own measurements.
You could choose, for example, number of words in thirty consecutive sentences in a book or newspaper article.
