Is responding variable the same as dependent variable?
There is in fact a difference.
Depending Variable: Varies on the outcome of the Responding Variable.
Responding Variable: Varies on the outcome of both itself and the Depending Variable.
Math keeps us goin'!
A manipulative variable is the variable you can alter, while the responding variable is the variable you have no control over. A manipulated variable is what is changed purposely throughout the experiment. The responding variable is which you have to measure to get your results I think. But the responding variable depends on the dependent variable. I believe I'm right!
