Interview Protocols >>> What kind of interviews are you learning about in this course >>> Understanding User Needs

 

This course does not cover focus groups, remote interviews, surveys, or unstructured interviews, though these techniques may be used in user needs assessments.

==============================

Interviews should be arranged with users or potential users at a time and place that are most like when they typically use the product or service.

==============================

==============================

This particular question has many flaws!

==============================

Yes, a semi-structured interview is based on a prepared protocol, but it will deviate from the protocol and be conversational in style.

==============================

You may not necessarily ask participants the overarching question, but it is useful as a focus for the entire interview.

==============================

The introduction will typically include self-introduction, interview goals, expected duration, confidentiality issues, voluntary nature, and request for permissions.

==============================

In the next question, you’ll be asked to provide the reason why this answer is correct.

==============================

This is a good question because it is open-ended, not leading, not judgmental, and about a specific, concrete instance. (However, the other questions may be appropriate in some circumstances.)

==============================

 

Interview questions should be ordered to have good flow, and it’s worthwhile to think of follow-up questions in advance, in case the participant doesn’t supply all of the information you are seeking.
