Before you conduct a study, use your theory to answer five questions: (1) what are you trying to prove, (2) what is it like in practice, (3) who is predicting whom, (4) who is being studied, and (5) what do the numbers mean? Theories are used to guide research; models are used to test theories. Because theories are composed of constructs, they are untested theoretical realities. But models are built for the purpose of being tested; they are composed of variables.
