Hello guys,

Could you please help me with my research study on user experience design tools?
It would be great if you'd just fill in this questionnaire: http://bit.ly/vBpseA

Thank you!

That's a really strange survey.  Are you expecting respondents to have used all 10 tools listed?  If I only use one or two tools, how am I supposed to compare to all the other tools on categories like "professional", "fun to use", "prestigious" (I'm not even sure how I should define how "prestigious" a tool is).   If I may ask, what are you hoping to get out of this survey?

Hi Brian!

Thanks for taking interest in my survey. Obviously I don't expect people to use all of listed tools, but they may use more than one (personally I use 3 of them regularly). In questions considering traits like "professional" etc. you supposed to choose 'the most [trait]' tool.

What I hope to get out of this survey are general information considering usage and image of wireframing & prototyping tools. 

I'll be honest with you Brian. I'm not so happy with this survey as well. Here is what happened. I'm graduating in psychology (second faculty, as I'm already graduated in philosophy) and this survey is part of 'market research program'. This is the result of team work and cooperation with a professor who's also running market research agency. It's full of compromises. And you know what's the deal with compromises...

I shouldn't complain though part of the sruvey considers tool that I have co-founded (and I'm serving there as CEO).

Sorry for all the trouble Brian hope you understand it better now. I have to find 300 respondents (and now I have... 25).

Best,

Marcin

Marcin,

Thanks for the honest reply.  I work in a corporate environment and believe me, its nothing but compromises here too so I completely understand how watered down the final product can get.  If I get some time later today or tomorrow I'll try to complete your survey.   Sounds like you are a long way off from your goal of 300 though....

Brian
