METHODOLOGY CGM 2 Extraneous Variables The goal of quantitative research is to examine the relationships between variables. Extraneous variables are any factors which are not intentional to the experiment or test [Sta18]. Some examples of participant variables in a continuous glucose monitoring study are the patient’s education on managing diabetes (intelligence), patient’s attitude (mood/anxiety/stress level), patient’s problem solving ability and cognitive efficiency (concentration) [Kue15]. The design of the study may also affect extraneous variables. Participant variables can be controlled using random allocation to the conditions of the independent variable [Kue15]. Personal characteristics such as age and gender cannot be changed however the participants can be given education and instructions on ways to manage their disease with diet, activity level, and medication adjustments.
