About Lesson

The last section in Chapter three is a table that tells the reader how the researcher has operationalized the variables. This table is called the Methodology Matrix Table or Operationalization of Variables Table.

To operationalize means how the researcher has measured the variables. Remember we said measurement does not mean data collection but data collection is part of measurement. Measurement is broad and covers scales of measurement, indicators as per the conceptual framework, methods of data collection and methods of analysis. That is why this table has a number of columns that captures how the variable has been operationalized.
