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.

Research Frameworks - Definition, Examples & Creation?

Hi all,
This idea of the "research framework" has really gotten stuck in my mind
since we began altering our process here at Evantage. But here's the
problem... I don't have a specific definition of what exactly this means. So
I've made one up:

Research Framework: A collection of things to ask & things to observe in
particular contexts, along with contextually appropriate techniques for
doing so.

Why Experience Mapping

Prototyping Tools 2012 - Axure RP 6.0 or iRise Studio

Hi all,

My first post on IXDA.

I realise that this point is raised periodically but wanted to get a quick verdict on the most popular prototyping and wireframe creation tools. 

Criteria is that we are designing enterprise, transactional applications and platforms - with complex interactions and logic and our designers are using mixture of Mac and Pc as their workstations - so ideally I want something multi platform compatible. 

Tools under the microscope are;-

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!

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?
