CMIS 4202 - HCI Evaluation Methods♦


(5 cr.) An effective and user-friendly human-computer interface (HCI) requires careful analysis, assessment, and modification. Students in this course learn empirical and heuristic methods for evaluating and improving human-computer interfaces. They also learn methods in conducting and analyzing user studies and ways to measure interfaces against models of human performance. Students engage in a group project through which they apply usability evaluation methods to a real-life scenario resulting in an actual HCI evaluation and report. This course also introduces students to the ethical and regulatory issues in human studies, providing them with the opportunity to understand all factors involved in conducting HCI evaluations.
  (Prerequisite(s): CMIS 4201.)
