Abstract

The main goal of the Web-STAR (Web-Survey Tool for Analyzing Requirements) project is to provide a standardized survey tool which developers can use to determine the user requirements for existing or new informational web sites. The Web-STAR will allow this most vital stage in the development process to take place within a convenient, tested, and cost-effective framework. Based on existing work in user evaluation design, Web-STAR will take sound development practices and apply them to user requirements in the design of informational websites. This paper presents the research-in-progress development and testing of Web-STAR.
