The skill to formulate a precise hypothesis statement is quite significant, but developing such a statement requires understanding all its constituents. My final hypothesis statement relates to the problem of not-reading children and adolescents. It involves a relationship between independent and dependent variables: “the changes in the dependent variable can be predicted based on the changes in the independent variable” (Razak et al., 2018, p. 45). The independent variable of this statement is new books that should be delivered to the school library of Marfa. The dependent one is the number of pupils that visit this library. This hypothesis statement seems to be quite meaningful and reasonable.
An accurate hypothesis is a supposition built on the connection of two variables and strives to solve a specific problem. The measurable and testable hypothesis should contain precise data and be easy to check. Not any assumption can bear the correct answer to how to get rid of the problem: “tentative solution to the problem may or may not be correct” (Anupama, 2018, p. 79). My hypothesis is measurable since it is not difficult to count library visitors. It can be tested through statistical analysis: it is possible to analyze the number of visitors to several libraries after adding new books. Therefore, this hypothesis statement is testable and provides a possible way to solve the problem.
