Measurement and data are two separate entity, however information or an object can be measured provided it’s a quantitative entity and data can be gathered from the measurement of such entity for a particular end, take a quiz and see what you know about measurement and data.

• 1.

Everything or substance in the world can be referred to as object or entity, what are the measurable attributes of a particular object?

• A.

Weight and length

• B.

Breath and Height

• C.

Top and Bottom

• D.

None of the above

A. Weight and length
Explanation
The measurable attributes of a particular object are weight and length. These attributes allow us to quantify and compare the physical properties of different objects. Weight refers to the force exerted on an object due to gravity, while length refers to the extent of an object in one dimension. By measuring these attributes, we can gather information about the size and mass of an object, which is useful for various purposes such as manufacturing, transportation, and scientific research.

Rate this question:

• 2.

For example, data is needed on two people to determine their height or weight, what tool will you use to measure the individuals' weight?

• A.

Ruler

• B.

Weight

• C.

Tape rule

• D.

None of the above

B. Weight
Explanation
To measure an individual's weight, the most appropriate tool to use is a weighing scale or a weight measuring device. A ruler is used to measure length or height, while a tape rule is used to measure length or distance. Therefore, the correct answer is "Weight".

Rate this question:

• 3.

The collection of fact in its raw form which has not been tampered with or processed for consumption is referred to as?

• A.

Information

• B.

Data

• C.

Measurement

• D.

Intel

B. Data
Explanation
Data refers to the collection of facts or information in its raw form, without any processing or manipulation. It is the unprocessed and unorganized information that is yet to be analyzed or interpreted. Data can be in various forms such as numbers, words, images, or any other format. It serves as the foundation for generating meaningful insights and knowledge once it is processed and analyzed.

Rate this question:

• 4.

What object will be used when trying to gather data on the height of two people to determine who is taller or shorter?

• A.

Ruler

• B.

Weight

• C.

Tape rule

• D.

Tape measure

A. Ruler
Explanation
A ruler is the most suitable object to gather data on the height of two people in order to determine who is taller or shorter. A ruler is a straight measuring tool that is typically marked with units of length, such as inches or centimeters, making it ideal for accurately measuring the height of individuals. Weight, tape rule, and tape measure are not appropriate for measuring height as they are designed for different purposes.

Rate this question:

• 5.

Facts that have been gathered undiluted and later processed and made into the sophisticated format for easy understanding can be referred as?

• A.

Information

• B.

Data

• C.

Opinion

• D.

Intel

A. Information
Explanation
Information refers to facts that have been gathered undiluted and later processed and made into a sophisticated format for easy understanding. It is distinct from data, which refers to raw, unprocessed facts. Opinion refers to personal beliefs or judgments, while Intel is a shortened form of intelligence and typically refers to information or knowledge related to national security or military matters. Therefore, the most appropriate term for the given description is "Information".

Rate this question:

• 6.

In science, data produced by a measurement, test method, experimental design or quasi-experimental design are known as?

• A.

Experimental data

• B.

Information

• C.

Quantitative data

• D.

Clinical research

A. Experimental data
Explanation
Experimental data refers to the data that is generated through a measurement, test method, experimental design, or quasi-experimental design in the field of science. It is the information obtained from conducting experiments or carrying out scientific investigations. This data is crucial for analyzing and drawing conclusions in scientific research.

Rate this question:

• 7.

Data that considered to be descriptive in nature are also subjective in comparison to having continuous measurement scale that produces numbers, such data are called?

• A.

Qualitative data

• B.

Quantitative data

• C.

Empirical data

• D.

Descriptive data

A. Qualitative data
Explanation
Qualitative data refers to information that is descriptive in nature and cannot be measured on a continuous scale. It is subjective and typically consists of observations, opinions, and interpretations. This type of data is often collected through methods such as interviews, surveys, and observations. In contrast, quantitative data is numerical and can be measured on a continuous scale, producing numbers. Empirical data refers to information that is based on direct observation or experience. Descriptive data refers to information that describes a particular phenomenon or situation.

Rate this question:

• 8.

Certain data are gathered in a manner that is normally experimentally repeatable, qualitative information is usually more closely related to phenomenal meaning subject to interpretation by individual observers, such data are called?

• A.

Qualitative

• B.

Explanative

• C.

Quantitative

• D.

Empirical

C. Quantitative
Explanation
The given answer is "Quantitative". This is because the question is asking for a term that describes data that is experimentally repeatable and not subject to interpretation by individual observers. Quantitative data refers to numerical information that can be measured and analyzed objectively, making it more reliable and less subjective compared to qualitative data.

Rate this question:

• 9.

The assignment of a number to a characteristic of an object or event, which can be compared with other objects or events, this process is called?

• A.

Proliferation

• B.

Research

• C.

Data

• D.

Measurement

D. Measurement
Explanation
Measurement is the process of assigning a number to a characteristic of an object or event, which can then be compared with other objects or events. It involves quantifying and evaluating the attributes or properties of something using standard units or scales. Through measurement, we can obtain objective and reliable information about the size, quantity, or quality of an object or event. It allows for the collection of data and the establishment of relationships and comparisons between different entities.

Rate this question:

• 10.

Measurement is a considerable cornerstone of trade, science, technology and quantitative research in many disciplines, all this, in turn, are refer after processing as?

• A.

Raw data

• B.

Tertiary data

• C.

Secondary data

• D.

Primary data

C. Secondary data
Explanation
Secondary data refers to data that has been collected by someone else for a different purpose and is being reused for a new study or analysis. In this context, measurement is used to collect data, which is then processed and referred to as secondary data. Secondary data is often used in research to supplement primary data, which is collected directly from the source for a specific study.
