Help the UPA Design a Useful and Usable Body of Knowledge

The Usability Professionals’ Association (UPA) is promoting the development of a major resource called the “Body of Knowledge” (BoK). The BoK will provide information on usability and design methods, organizational issues that affect usability, curriculum, terminology, and other topics. More information about the BoK project can be found on the UPA web site.

We need your help in building the Usability BoK. This brief survey will help us understand the needs of usability practitioners, students, and the wider community of people interested in usability.

It should take about 15 minutes to complete. Individuals responding to this survey cannot be uniquely identified or associated with specific responses. All information collected in the survey will be consolidated prior to analysis and reporting, individual responses will be kept confidential.

Thank you for participating in this survey. If you are interested in contributing in some way to the BoK, there is an optional place at the end for your name and email (which will not be connected with the information you provide in the survey). If you have questions, please contact the BoK Working Group by e-mail at bok@upassoc.org.
