Homework 6: Revised Interfaces Based on HE
Homework 6: Start: Mon, Nov. 30, 2009, Finish: Mon, Dec. 7, 2009
The TA should have already sent to you the two evaluations from your classmates.
In this assignment, you should revise your interface based on that feedback. It
is very important that you respond to each criticism, and avoid changing each
good thing mentioned. In general, you should make the recommended changes.
However, if you have a good reason for not making a fix, you can make
that argument in your report. Your grade on this assignment will depend
primarily on the quality of your final, resulting interface, and your responses
to your classmates' comments. Your grade will be
lowered if we do not agree with your reason for not fixing problems
that were brought up in your previous user studies, and by your classmates in
their heuristic analyses.
The deliverables for this assignment are:
- First, the final revised prototype, resulting from your responses to all
the user studies and heuristic analyses. Zip up your implementation files as usual. Name
this file: HCI-HW6-lastname-firstname.zip and upload it to
- Second, you should write a report, containing a concise list of the
problems brought up in the HEs by your classmates and a brief description of
the response to each, possibly with screen shots of the before and after
versions. You must copy and paste the two HE tables from your classmates
into your report, and then refer to each recommendation in both tables
so we can see what you were given. If you made any other changes to your system since Homework 4, for
example in response to the TA's comments, or problems users had in your user
studies which you had not previously addressed, then please make a note of
that in your report too, and mention the source of the problem. You will get
a better grade based on all the improvements you make from your previous
(Assignment 4) version, whether the recommendation for the change results
from a previous user study, the TA or an HE. Turn this part in hardcopy
in class on Dec 7.
- You should also fill out the questionnaires for the class: the official
CMU one and the class one:
