I'm unsure of how to operationalise this hypothesis for psychology (can someone possibly explain what "operationalise" means?)

Females will have a better short term memory compared to males.

operationalising is making something measurable. So in this context find a task of short term memory that other people have used in psychology

You need to propose vague results in your hypothesis to operationalise it.

So for example, you can say that females will score higher on average out of 10 on a memory test, compared to males
Basically, to operationalise it, you must include a measurable DV

(Females and males- IV)
(The average score out of 10 on the memory test- DV)
