Questions for relevant content area are then drafted or borrowed or adapted from other instruments. Researcher must carefully monitor the wording of each question for clarity, sensitivity to the respondent's psychological state, freedom from bias and reading level. Questions must then be sequenced in a psychologically meaningful order and in a manner that encourages'cooperation.
