I need to create an app which allows users to score sections of a questionnaire. The score ranges from 1 - 10, speed would dictate that buttons would be the fastest way to do this and it is something we have done before when the scoring system ranged from 1 to 4. However would 10 buttons take up too much space, would the buttons would be too small to be accessible?
Here's a mock of ideas I'm considering:
- Access shows the slider, we're not 100% certain the framework we are using will support it. Possible issues are accurate score selection, slightly confusing numbers shown to the user.
- Buttons, one of the quickest selections, something we've tried and tested in the past, instant visual of the score rating and how it fits with the users matrix. Pitfalls, makes the interface look busy (there will be 10 questions in all) fiddly for fat fingers.
- Fire Precautions shows another method we've used in the past. The number is tapped, every tap increments it by 1. Pitfalls are that in previous apps the max score has been 5, with the max score here being 10 with 10 questions it could be a lot of taps. It's not immediately obvious what you're supposed to do to enter a score, we've looked at several icon designs to indicate that the numbers increments, if you tap past the number you want it is an entirely infuriating experience.
Here's another method I'm considering:
Can't see many pitfalls with this, can you?
Would appreciate your ideas and comments.
