Things to consider

  1. Clear Instructions - Make sure every question is easy to understand. Avoid using jargon or complex words. The simpler and clearer the form, the higher the chances of it being filled out accurately and completely.
  2. Privacy Assurance - Coaches might be hesitant to share insights fearing a breach of privacy. Assure them that their information is secure and will be used strictly for professional improvement.
  3. Mobile Responsiveness - Coaches might be filling out the form on various devices. Ensure that your form is responsive and easy to fill out on both desktop and mobile devices.
  4. Free-Text Fields Minimization - While it's important to allow coaches to express their thoughts, too many free-text fields can make the form time-consuming. Strike a balance between multiple choice and open-ended questions.
  5. Form Length - If the form is too long, it might discourage coaches from filling it out. Keep it concise but comprehensive.
  6. Validation and Error Messages - Use HTML5 validation to ensure that the form is filled out correctly. Clear error messages can guide coaches if they make a mistake while filling out the form.
  7. Optional Questions - Some questions might not be relevant to all coaches. Mark these as optional so that coaches can skip them if necessary.
