bias
Bias is an inclination or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective, often accompanied by a refusal to consider the possible merits of alternative points of view
Got it
experiment
An experiment is a procedure carried out to support, refute, or validate a hypothesis
Got it
nominal
Level of measurement or scale of measure is a classification that describes the nature of information within the numbers assigned to variables
Got it
continuous
In mathematics, a continuous function is, roughly speaking, a function for which sufficiently small changes in the input result in arbitrarily small changes in the output
Got it
parameter
A parameter , generally, is any characteristic that can help in defining or classifying a particular system
Got it
population
A population is a summation of all the organisms of the same group or species, which live in a particular geographical area, and have the capability of interbreeding
Got it
sample
In statistics and quantitative research methodology, a data sample is a set of data collected and/or selected from a statistical population by a defined procedure

Convenience sampling
Convenience sampling is a type of non-probability sampling that involves the sample being drawn from that part of the population that is close to hand
resources
A resource is a source or supply from which benefit is produced
statistic
Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data
Quantitative data
In natural sciences and social sciences, quantitative research is the systematic empirical investigation of observable phenomena via statistical, mathematical or computational techniques
statistical model
A statistical model is a class of mathematical model, which embodies a set of assumptions concerning the generation of some sample data, and similar data from a larger population
data
Data is a set of values of qualitative or quantitative variables
speed
In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity ; it is thus a scalar quantity
