Research work essentially involves the collection of data or facts unknown or untouched till date. To collect these data, a wide range of tools or instruments can be used based on the study objectives or the settings in which they have to be used. For conducting a sensitization session for faculty and postgraduate students about competency-based medical education, entrustable professional activities, use of appropriate assessment tools for the certification of EPAs to produce a competent postgraduate, and roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders, a number of tools can be employed, such as questionnaire, checklist, rating scale, attitude scale, and observation. To conclude, planned utilization of appropriate data collection tool can play a crucial part in the successful outcome of a project or a session. Thus, it is very much important that the researcher should be aware of the merits and demerits of each tool and the settings under which they should be employed.
