The instrumentation section of your methodology can be one of the most straightforward pieces in the entire chapter. If you know where to look, you will not even have to put much thought into what to write – just let the information do the talking! But of course, that begs the question: what information am I even looking for?
Well, the first thing to do is know what instrument you are using. We have plenty of resources for that, like this blog on how to find a validated instrument, or this directory of some of the most commonly used instruments. Once you have done that, make sure to locate one of two things – either the article describing the creation of the instrument (this is your best bet) or the manual that comes with the instrument on purchase. Either of these should have the information you need, which you should present neatly and in this order:
Aligning theoretical framework, gathering articles, synthesizing gaps, articulating a clear methodology and data plan, and writing about the theoretical and practical implications of your research are part of our comprehensive dissertation editing services.
And that is it! Add an introduction to the instrument at the head of the section, and you should be done! In the introduction, it is best practice to name the population the instrument’s creators tested the instrument on, if available.
