Hi please can some help me to figure out my assignment. I have asked tutor for help but she just said find out yourself. I have spent days looking for something that can help me but I can’t find anything that can help me . We have to write a report on the relationship between two variables. We have to choose two appropriate variables out of the following measurement instruments but I have no idea which to choose because I have no idea about what makes them appropriate . If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

GRIT – 12 item Duckworth, Peterson, Matthews and Kelly (2007)

Unintentional Procrastination Scale Fernie, Bharucha, Nikcevic and Spada (2017)

Academic self-efficacy scale Zimmerman, Bandura & Martinez-Pons (1992)

Deary-Liewald Reaction Time Task Deary, Liewald & Nissan (2011)

Emotional Intelligence Self-Assessment Questionnaire. Weinberg & Pearson (unpublished)

Please can anyone help as I am at the end of my tether. I have no one else to ask😭 and I really want to pass.

TIA

Well, if you read just a little bit about them, you'd get a picture of what they measure. Just from the titles, some of them are descriptive enough almost. So far as what's appropraite, it's all a bit arbitrary, in a good way. It's about human behaviour, joining them up and it giving a kind of story. For example, GRIT according to Google is:
The Grit Scale is a set of measures designed to measure trait-level perseverance and passion for long-term goals.
Then there's the Unintentional Procrastination Scale. I picked that one because it's description is in the name. So you could imagine, possibly, people who have high long-term goal interest/passion, maybe, being a bit crap at putting things off, being dreamy and vague, and never getting down to nitty gritty. They have good intentions, but fail to get round to it. That's what those two scales could show if both gave a high score to someone. And conversely, maybe, people who are crap at long term goals are good at doing things here and now. I don't know, it's just a case of teasing out stories I guess? Seeing what fits together and suggests stories, types of behaviour.
