be less apt to leave for a better location to teach and more qualified teachers would be drawn into Oklahoma to teach. Purpose of operationalizing variables: Operationalizing variables help us to turn the variables into something we can measure. How would you operationalize the variables in your research question? I would take a look at the data from the past 10 years since the last teacher raise in Oklahoma and visualize the year to year trend of fewer and fewer teachers. I would also take a look at random locations (small, medium, large cities) across the state and see how the salaries compare and how they relate to the cost of living in those areas. Develop a set of hypothesis (null and alternative) from your identified variables that address your research question. Null hypothesis: Teachers will continue to receive the same compensation and the shortage of qualified teachers will continue to grow larger.

Alternative hypothesis: Teachers in Oklahoma will receive a raise and more qualified teachers will be willing to teach in Oklahoma.
