1. Careful logical analysis of the problem separating its elements and whenever possible formulating hypothesis:

2. Unequivocal definition of terms and concepts and statistical units and measures so that others will understand exactly and be able to repeat the analysis and test the generalizations.

3. Collection of data pertinent to the problem under study,

4. Classification of data.

5. Expression of variables in quantitative terms whenever possible,

6. Rigorous and exacting experimental or statistical procedure in summarizing the data and in isolating the attributes or variables and measuring their relationship and inter effects.

7. Sound logical reasoning as to the testing of hypothesis and drawing generalizations.

8. Statement in unassailable terms of the exact conclusion arrived at from the findings .

9. Specific and clear statement of generalization to facilitate checking and testing by others:

10. Complete elimination of personal equation and

11. Complete and careful reporting of the research process definitions and the methods of analysis so that others can check the analysis or test the generalizations with new sets of data.
