"One’s internal, personal sense of their gender. Gender identity is best represented as a spectrum and an individual may move around this spectrum. Some terms that are associated with this spectrum are man, woman, gender fluid, genderqueer, trans, transgender and two-spirit, although these are not the only terms. Some individuals may identify as both man and woman, neither man nor woman, or non-binary."

"Generalized linear mixed models extend linear mixed models, or hierarchical linear models, to accommodate noncontinuous responses, such as binary responses or counts. Such models are useful when the data are clustered in some way, a canonical example in education being students nested in schools."

Generalizability refers to the ability for research findings to be applied accurately to a larger population. In order to ensure generalizability, researchers must carefully construct their research design to use a sample population that accurately reflects the larger population and realistic circumstances.
