Point added for a correct answer:   
Points for a wrong answer:
Ignore the questions' coefficients:

1 True or False, A definition is a way to end conceptual disputes and prepare the way for measurement.


2 A metadefinition does not deal with which of the following?

a statement of identity
a way to locate a term within a particular context
a way to generate new ideas
any arbitrary choice
a set of attributes

3 Yes or No, A constituent phrase has a metadefinition iff it is unrelatable through an algorithm to the initial definition.


4 Presenting existing knowledge in an alternate form involves which attribute?

producing new knowledge
changes in attributes over time
changes as a function of other variables
summarizing existing knowledge
alternate knowledge that is new
original research

5 True or False, Failing to pass a test always means that the phrase is not a constituent of the metadefinition.


6 An alternate form for the existing knowledge of a dominant group does not contain?

a relation between members of the group
a population from which the group is from
criterion of dominance
a region with limits
attributes addressing appropriate purposes
a relation between members of the population

7 True or False, A metadefinition of a clear liquid contains molecules readily fixed to a relative position.


8 A metadefinition for computer modeling contains which of the following?

premisses from conclusions
role, activity and interaction
provides a bimodal process support framework
defining a divisive process
readability and simplicity as the main issue
a notation independent of external process modelling

9 True or False, Definitions which correspond to intuitive views of the knowledge games are metadefinitions.


10 Which of the following is applicable to a metadefinition of principal eigenvalue?

only a trivial solution exists
heterogeneity between the odd operator and the second order elliptic operator
a domain such that
a function v such that
only a non trivial solution of variable sign
a zero order and odd operator

11 True or False, The purpose of a treatment group for metadefinitions is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.


12 Complete the text:

A proof-of-concept structure, including a control group, consists of , procedures, findings, and .

13 True or False, Pure metadefinitions involve no doing apart from themselves.


14 Complete the text:

A short or realization of a certain or idea to a treament's feasibility for metadefinitions is called a proof of .

15 True or False, A control group may be used in metadefinitions to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.


16 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea versus a control group is feasible for metadefinitions is called a


17 True or False, A dominant group associated with metadefinitions differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the control group.
