How to create research questions?

You can conduct interviews by planning and working hard. But before that, you need to know how you can collect questions. Here are some questions you need to consider:

1. Defining the themes

Firstly, identify what you need to know. Brainstorming with your team gives you numerous ideas and techniques to figure out what data you need. Your marketing, product development, and the market research team will rely on the data you collect. Hence, you need to conduct separate brainstorming sessions with all of them.

2. Divide your questions into sections

After deciding upon themes, it’s time to dig deeper into research. While browsing through ideas, you can separate them according to sections. Breaking down ideas gives you a clearer picture and helps you identify questions. Hence, you move towards the goal. Write down different questions under each section.

3. Ask relevant questions

Once you list down questions in different sections, remove irrelevant questions from the list. You should know that you are looking for honest and straightforward answers from your potential customers. So keeping anything besides the leading questions will waste a lot of time. When choosing questions, make sure that they allow you to get clear answers and not assumptions.

4. Ask for the examples

Research participants might experience difficulty in communicating with users about the user interface, product, and software. You need to prepare questions that will help eliminate potential obstacles. When you ask participants about a specific user experience, you receive accurate answers. This means highly usable data.

5. Asking open-end questions

When you interview participants, understand that their experiences are valuable. This creates the need for a comfortable environment for communication. Many customers are okay with yes and no answers, although some might provide descriptive answers. To avoid yes and no answers, give your questions an open-end structure.
