How do individual HCI-practitioners evaluate their own work practice? And how would they like to evaluate it? Answers to these questions will give new knowledge on the state-of-the-practice in this area, and provide insight for researchers trying to improve practitioners' ability to evaluate their development project activities. The questions were investigated through questionnaire survey responses of 179 HCI-practitioners from the Nordic countries. It was found that the general maturity for evaluation of own practice were fairly high. However, the results indicate that HCI-practitioners tend not to evaluate their practice with regard to its impact on the development team and project leader; which may be counter productive to the downstream utility of HCI activities. Presentation of ongoing development of evaluation procedures, based on the results, will be included in the talk at NordiCHI 2006.
