Hi fellow researchers,

I am about to do a final experiment for my PhD, interviews with 
knoweldge workers about semantic desktop.

I will have two questionnaires that cover the same topic: PIM activities 
(finding, reminding).
One questionnaire will cover the "current state" in their PIM behaviour,
the second will cover "do you think semantic desktop will help in PIM".

Most questions will have 5-point Likert-scale answers.

Some of these questions will correlate (double-checking the same fact 
with similar questions at different times) so I expect some of the 
answers to correlate.

Do you know of software for this:
* Making 5-point likert scale questionnaires
* Having participants fill-out these questionnaires on-screen (via web 
or desktop app)
* Mathematical analysis of answers finding out correlations
* Computation of mean/derivation/etc and plotting of graphs
?

I have seen the questionnaire used by the simile's

I would love to use some clever software to make up the cleverness I 
miss on that....

best
Leo
