Product Description
This assignment offers an in-depth explanation of an operational definition in plain language, including clear examples. It then gives 8 scenarios and asks the students to operationally define an abstract concept in each scenario. Please see sample for my explanation of an operational definition and for two sample scenarios.

After creating an operational definition for the scenarios, the students pair up and share their operational definitions with each other to determine if they defined them in the same way or not. At the end, they critically think about how operational definitions help the validity of experiments. There are ten questions for the students to answer in total.

Answer key is provided.

This was a very successful activity in my class, and I hope it will help your AP students as well!
