Controlled variables are also important to identify in experiments. They are the variables that are kept constant to prevent their influence on the effect of the independent variable on the dependent. Every experiment has a controlling variable, and it is necessary to not change it, or the results of the experiment won't be valid. --moved from top-- contrib by 188.8.131.52 on 20:42, 22 July 2010
Currently, the first occurrence of 'covariate' links to the wikipedia article for 'co-variance'; which does not refer to covariate, and -to my best understanding- are not directly related. Being a read-only user, I still feel uncomfortable actually editing the page and removing the link, in case I am missing something. TheRealLoderunner (talk) 21:49, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
