data collection tool

 Under  the heading method and design in your research proposal regardless of  the method/approach used qualitative, quantitative, or mix methods, you  will need to discuss the data collection instrument (tool) you propose  to use to gather data. The word instrument is the general term that  researchers use for a measurement device (survey, questionnaire, test,  interview, observation, etc.). Discuss the instrument you intend to use  in your research proposal and how you intend to address the instrument’s  validity and reliability noting the different types of each.
