Q: I have a couple of questions on research instruments.
- Who are the people who can help you devise a good instrument?
- Will the contents of your instrument lead you to answer your stated problem?
Your research guide or supervisor would actually be in the best position to help you devise an effective instrument.
About the second question, an appropriate and well-designed research instrument should help you gather the data necessary for your research model. The data would need to be further analyzed in order to answer your research question or prove/disprove your hypothesis.

You may also find the following questions of interest.
- Should I write the definition and working of an instrument or scale that I used in my study?
- Which research instrument do I use to collect data for solving a labour problem?
Hope that helps. All the best for your design and paper!
