This short paper addresses the question of whether practitioners perceive requirements for the cognitive effectiveness of a visual notation to have different importance when that visual notation is used with modeling experts (i.e., developers, modelers) and novices (i.e., business stakeholders, end-users). Through analysis of data resulting from an ongoing empirical study we show that some requirements differ in how important they are perceived for modeling expert and novice use, but that these differences are difficult to meaningfully assess without further in-depth qualitative work.
