Abstract

An environmental scan of existing online-questionnaire design tools found that little, if any, support is currently incorporated within tools to guide online-questionnaire design according to the essence of these guidelines [24]. A logical step towards better supporting online-questionnaire design is, therefore, to practically and effectively incorporate the online-questionnaire design guidelines into design tools. This paper reflects on the pros and cons of various candidate support mechanisms which we considered during the realization of this step. The discussion is, necessarily, biased towards our goal and constraints; it is not our intention to extrapolate generic implications from our reflections, but rather to discuss our systematic comparison process and resulting observations in the hope that both may be useful to researchers and developers faced with a similar challenge.
