Research Methods Links
After you decide what methods you want to use to collect the data for your

to the field of computing, but most are generic methods descriptions.
- How to construct
questions on a questionnaire. The same principles work for interview questions.
- The American Statistical Association's guide to survey
- An extensive paper
on survey design with sections on planning, selection, question construction,
analysis, and interpretation.
- A quick-and-dirty
recipie style guide to constructing an interview (also has a section on questionnaires).
