Using the readings and resources from this and previous weeks, and the Capella library’s instrument and measurement databases (linked in the Resources), identify two instruments that would be the most appropriate for determining the effectiveness of your intervention. One of the instruments may be related to a biometric property.

Submit a 2–3 page paper, using APA format, in which you:

Using the readings and media resources as guidance, describe how the data from these instruments will be collected and safeguarded.
