#' Split Instruments from Raw Report
#' Given a dataframe from a raw report, convert the dataframe into a list of
#' dataframes. Each dataframe is 1 Redcap instrument's worth of data in tidy
#' format. Instrument data can be accessed through $ notation such as
#' output$nnb to get the data from the Northwestern Naming Battery. The name
#' of each dataframe is set to be the instrument prefix to keep things short.
#' @param report_data Dataframe, the raw exported data from a report
#' @param lookup Dataframe, instrument name-prefix lookup table.
#' @param record_id_col Defaults to record_id
#' @param verbose Logical, if True will print each instrument as it's processing
#' @return List of dataframes, named according to instrument prefix
#' @export
