Basically a robot needs to drive a Model 3 in a controlled environment and takes measurement every 5k miles(e.g.).

Or each Tesla has onboard storage(better not be flash that can wear out) that logs all the above data, and an independent govt agency can run some AI/ML/big data to normalize all the data to get a true picture of what is happening.
It is very easy to check the constant used. That doesn't depend on driving.

Take a note at range at 100% [fullrange]
Drive it down to near 0 (20-30% works as well, the closer to 0 the better)
check the total energy consumption on the display [totalEconsumed]
note the remaining distance [remainingrange]

constant Wh/km = totalEconsumed / (fullrange-remainingrange)
