A response variable (or dependent variable) is 4 variable that measures an outcomeor result ofa study, while an explanatory variable (or independent variable) is a variable that we think explains or causes changes in the response variables.
We expect that students in different grades might find different things most important as students in 6th grade might find grades more important than students in 4th grade.
This then implies that grade is the explanatory variable and what is more important is the response variable.
