When we have discovered why something happens, we have removed the  accountable variance. The next question is obviously what to do with the variability  which we do not understand.  The obvious and productive solution to the problem of residual variability  in the data from the subjects is to ask "why?" Why do these individuals  score higher, how can I predict which of the scores will be higher? What  will change an individual? By manipulating variables, you can find the  answer.  There are ways for a few simple completely deterministic variables to  interact such that the result is a seemingly random series of measures  (chaos theory). The resulting variations cannot always be proven  nonrandom by simply observing the output. By developing a model of the  processes underlying the behavior those factors could be resolved. It should

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
