User Feedback form

Hi all,

The project I am working on is currently going for end user testing. But we
donot have facilities of user monitoring through videos or web as such. We
are, as a first step, planning to hand over a form either online or on
paper, which the user fills up after his interaction with the system. I know
this is not advisable but we don't have options over here as of now...

Is there a kind of a "standardized" form available which has proved
effective in gathering the user feedback as accurately as possible? Also, I
was trying to develop a feedback form here.

Forms/processes that show options after choices

Hi everyone

Sorry my title is cryptic - I can't figure out how to describe
what I need in such a small space.

I'm currently designing a complex web form/process that can
potentially ask the respondent to supply quite a lot of
information. 'Potentially' because the majority of respondents do
not have to supply the full set.

Will this be better than Google?

Please check that out. I've got nothing to do with the service, but I

Job: Interaction Designer/Information Architect at Apples To Oranges (SF Bay Area, US; Full-time & Contract)

Interaction Designer/Information Architect

You love users. You have a passion for making the user experience as easy and useful as possible. You're tired of 90% of the web that is difficult and confusing, and with just a little thought and user testing, could be so much better. You believe people just need to use things, not learn them.

Apples To Oranges, a San Francisco Bay Area (US) web consultancy firm, is looking for an Interaction Designer and Information Architect to drive the development of our online applications and website projects.

Touch screen target size

It's been a while since I've designed a touch screen interface, so... given a 15" LCD display and finger for stylus, what's the general consensus for the size of a discreet target? In the olden days on a CRT, it was typically about 20mm or 3/4". Given the reduction in paralax, improvements in touchscreen technologies, and such, what is a "standard" target size?

DUX - you register yet?

I just found out that DUX is almost sold out at close to 450 or so peeps. So
if you are going (and want to go) you might want to register sooner rather
than later.
