Abstract: Computer based questionnaire has an important role in collecting data in different domain. As the use of computer based questionnaires have been increased in different domains, each of them uses different technique to create and design the questionnaire. The main tools that have been used to create questionnaire in different domains mostly have the lack of semantic web, generic structure, and consist of large amount of hard coding. This thesis has three major purposes: (1) to create generic questionnaire ontology to facilitate computer based questionnaire design that can be used in various domains. (2) to merge different domain ontologies with the questionnaire ontology that can be used as an error checking mechanism during questionnaire creation (3) to modify the questionnaire content when the domain ontology content have been modified. Three proposed prototype systems have been designed and implemented in this study to demonstrate these purposes.
