    OK. What would I do to test the sensor to determine if that is the problem, short of just replacing it?

A lot depends on the year of your 924
but more often than not it is nothing more than a defective coolant temp sensor

    I don't know what happened, but it is a 944 and although it shows 1988 in my profile it is a 1983.

Car temp gauge reads hot but it doesn't seem to be running hot. I have changed the thermostat, cooling fan sensor and temp gauge sensor, still reading almost hot to the red. The water is flowing through...

From your description, it does not sound like it is actually running hot.
Might be a faulty gauge or computer unit.
I hate to say it, but sometimes worth taking to the dealer to check annoying ones like this.

Are the hoses hot to the touch?
If not, then check your cooling system for either air-pockets or blockages.
If the main radiator is also not hot when running and if the temperature gauge is reading high, then change your thermostat.

If, as you say both hoses are the same temp and hot to the touch, then is the interior blower motor turning?
Have you checked the condition of any interior cabin air filter?
Also check that the heater matrix core hasn't been clocked up with dirty/fir/fluff etc.

Changed all temp. Sensors but temp. Gauge says it's running hot but hit has no symptoms of overheating

undo the clip on the highest hot hose to expell any trapped air(this is a first step to any heating problem and its the cheapest.....)
