## What is dependent and independent variable in Research example?

Let’s take the example of “Test Scores”. You want to see the effect of studying or sleeping on a test score. In the example, **“test score” is the dependent variable.** **“Studying” or “sleeping” is the independent variable** because these factors impact how much a student scores on the test.

## Which is the dependent variable?

A dependent variable is **a variable whose value depends upon independent variable s**. The dependent variable is what is being measured in an experiment or evaluated in a mathematical equation. The dependent variable is sometimes called “the outcome variable.”

## How do you identify independent variables?

An easy way to think of independent and dependent variables is, when you’re conducting an experiment, the independent variable is what you change, and the dependent variable is what changes because of that. You can also think of the independent variable as the cause and the dependent variable as the effect.
