The primary purpose of this paper is to present the results of an online survey of the effectiveness of the COMPETE Online Decision Entry System (CODES), which was deployed on the Web in Fall 1999. A brief ASP-based CODES Evaluation Survey was developed and deployed on the Web to assess whether CODES was convenient and easy to use, whether decision entry and viewing and printing output were simple, and whether the decision entry page layout was easy to follow. In addition, respondents were asked whether they preferred to print one or more pages of results at a time, and whether they encountered any difficulty logging in to CODES. The results of the survey and suggestions for improvement are presented, and future improvements are discussed.
