Cogsci 120: Human Computer Interaction 3 ± Goal is for you to start thinking critically about interfaces ± Focus on Usability and Experience Factors ± We will judge the arguments you advance. Good to focus on an interface you know. ± Make use of what you are reading in the textbook ± PC or web application, device, or environment. ± Learning ± Visibility of system status ± Match between system and tasks ± Using existing knowledge ± Control and freedom ± Consistency with other interfaces and standards ± design ± Error prevention ± Errors: Recognize, diagnose, and recover ± Should be a balanced presentation . Not only positive aspects for Hall of Fame or negative for Hall of Shame. Think about and discuss the tradeoffs involved. ± Difficult to adequately discuss a complex interface in a short paper. Fine to focus on a part . ± Recognition/recall ± Flexibility and efficiency of use ± Enjoyment ± Aesthetic s ± ± Submit paper version in class and after add a version to your wiki section.

While the paper should give an overview of the interface ( images and figures are very useful ), who the users are, and what tasks the interface is designed to support, the focus should be to clearly explain the specific reasons the interface is effective or ineffective and thus deserving of entry into the Hall of Fame or Hall of Shame. Should not be unsupported opinion. Support your arguments and convince the reader. Provide a balanced substantive assessment.
