- Question answers this question: What is the research question that this object attempts to answer?
It contains a description of the physical and abstract boundaries of the object. For assessment and variable objects, scope is an expression of what part of reality the object is intended to describe. Scope does not have a true counterpart in reality, it is always referential to the instrumental use purpose of the object it relates to. Question is an attribute of a variable or an assessment describing the research question (including the boundaries) that the object attempts to answer. In open assessment also an attribute of other information objects. For a process, the respective attribute is called purpose. <section end=glossary />
Previously, question was called scope. Nowadays, scope is used only within assessments and its meaning is wider: it contains the research question but also participants, intended use and users, boundaries, and scenarios. For details, see assessment.
