design exercises and/or portfolio review during interview

Hi all, Have any of you ever given design problems/exercises to someone interviewing for an Interaction design position? If so, how well did that work, and how did you come up with the design problems? It seems that the design problems cannot require a lot of background about the users or specialized domain knowledge since we have limited time with each candidate.

One person has suggested to me that reviewing a candidate's portfolio would be a better approach. I was thinking a combined approach might be useful. What do you think?

All ideas and experiences welcome!

"Help! Is there a Cardiothoracic Surgeon in the room?"

In an emergency, you fetch a doctor.

Interestingly, there are no doctors. Or, more accurately, there are
many doctors that you don't want to help you in a medical emergency.
(My good friend, with the Ph.D. in 15th Century English Literature, is
not the person you want to deliver the baby, even if he was the only
Doctor on the island.)

Many qualified medical professionals don't have an official "doctor"
title.

Best practices for designing Terms and Conditions/Customer Agreement Interactions

I'm looking for any research or information on best practices for designing interactions where users have to accept some legal terms and conditions.  For instance - what are the advantages/disadvantages of presenting terms to the side of the main form vs. below or in a pop-up?  Or - if the terms are going to be in a scrolling window, are there any guidelines about how big that window should be?  How many lines should show at once relative to length of the whole agreement?

Req: Reference on readability of centered vs left-justified text

Does anyone have a reference showing that left-justified text is more
readable than centered text?

Something like:
(a) an academic study or paper
(b) a textbook
(c) a well-known graphic design book

I've been googling for a while and have found many pages that agree
with me, but none citing sources. :/

Flowchart: action box or decision box?

I'm doing an exercise to practice the design of task flow. I have one
step which has 5 options in it. And the user is supposed to choose one
and move forward. In this case, shall I use the diamond decision box
or the rectangular action box to illustrate this step? I googled a
little bit. And it seems that the outcome of a diamond box is usually
YES or NO instead of options. Where can I find more complicated
samples for learning purpose? Thanks.

Good examples of IVR, (Interactive voice response), Interaction Design Standards

I'm working on an IVR project and was wondering what were the best
Interaction Standards/ Guidelines which IxD'ers have used, to create
successful IVR solutions.

The IVR project I'm working on comprises many functions for multiple roles,
and is supposed follow standards and be very simple, forgiving and easy to
use, all with touch pad technology.

Others IVR project experience would be interesting to hear, no pun intended
;)

Thanks,
