Re: survey for research sub group

Hi, Lisa, see below for suggested changes to 6 of the questions, plus a
suggestion for an additional question, thanks:

*1. How might you use this research?*
Suggested rewording: How have you used or might you use this research?

*2. Which documents have you / may you use (select all that apply) *
Suggested rewording: Which documents have you used or may you use? (Select
all that apply)

*3. How important was this research to you?*
Suggested rewording: How useful was this research to you or how likely is
this research to be important to you?
FYI, I'm suggesting:

   - Changing "important" to "useful" so the question better aligns with
   the answers and also so the question sounds less similar to the next
   question ("How important is it to you that this research be updated?")
   - Expanding the question so it can work for folks who have not yet used
   the research

*4. How important is it to you, that this research is updated?*
I suggest rewording the question, including the year each resource was
published, and adding a follow-up question:
How important is it to you [REMOVE COMMA] to update this research?

   - User research (2015)
   - Issue papers (2021)
   - Gap analysis (2018)

If you answered very important or somewhat important, how often do you
think this research needs to be updated:

   - Once a year
   - Once every three years
   - Once every five years
   - Other:

*5. Are you aware of Making Content Usable
<> or interested in any other additional
documents from this group?*
I suggest either focusing this question solely on awareness of Making
Content Usable or else specifying what "other additional documents from
this group" folks might be interested in because:

   - It's hard to tell what documents are on this wiki page besides three
   prominent links to parts of Making Content Usable and links to "More Useful
   Documents" that this survey has already been asking about in detail—user
   research, issue papers, and gap analysis
   - I suggest you specify the "other additional documents" in the list of
   responses or else skip that part so people don't get frustrated looking at
   a confusing wiki page
   - Also, this survey mentions Making Content high up in the intro, so
   survey takers may have heard about the resource for the first time when
   taking this survey

Suggested rewording that focuses on Content Usable:
Before taking this survey, were you aware of our 2021 resource, Making
Content Usable <>?

   - Yes, I was aware of and I use / want to use Making Content Usable
   - Yes, I was aware of but I don't use / want to use Making Content Usable
   - Yes, I use / want to use the coga wiki for resources  (Such as
   - No, I was not aware of Making Content Usable until this survey

*6. Lastly, we are seeking a diverse group...*
Nothing happens when I answer yes to this question. Should the survey
provide additional questions? Or do you want to change the wording so folks
who answer yes will expect some sort of follow-up by email, etc, where they
will be asked these additional questions?
