To operationalise research based on these propositions, the following four steps are proposed. First, through literature review, isolate test factors that appear consistently from correlation of test scores, whatever the culture. Test types that repeatedly mark such factors are given valid dependent-variable status through replication. Next, from experimental psychology, define cognitive processes that are hypothetically or demonstrably involved in test types. Consequently, design experimental procedures that show the effect of process variation or control on the dependent variables (test scores) in anyone culture.
