Experimental Instructions for Analyzing the Usability of Model-Based Interaction Systems
Model-based interaction systems are capable of adapting their user interfaces to different physical devices and interaction paradigms (e.g., smart phone, desktop PC, tablet). While the model-based approach reduces the effort of developing and maintaining many different adapted user interfaces of a single application, the usability of these adapted interfaces is hard to maintain. The research project "Automatische Usability-Evaluierung modellbasierter Interaktionssysteme für Ambient Assisted Living" (http://www.tu-berlin.de/?135088) aims to solve this problem by creating an automatable usability evaluation tool for model-based interaction systems.
As part of the project, several empirical studies were conducted. Following the good practice of open materials, all instructions used during the empirical studies are published here.
