OERL: Instruments

Users are encouraged to use or adapt instruments, sections, or individual questions to create instruments that are tailored to their projects. We caution users, however, that sound instrument development requires further piloting of any instrument that has been adapted for use in a context that differs significantly from the context in which it was developed. The instruments were selected from data collection forms and protocols developed especially for evaluations of actual NSF-funded projects. Mixed-Method Evaluations: Start. Directorate for Education and Human Resources Division of Research, Evaluation and Communication National Science Foundation The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides awards for research and education in the sciences and engineering.
