Collecting Data

Hello!

 

In what is concerned with data collection there are some questions that I need to ask myself before the data collection takes place:

 

Where to collect the data? The data will be collected at the Communication and Art Department of the University of Aveiro, next to the users when the tests occur.

 

When to collect the data? The data will be collected in two different moments: during the test, the investigator will observe the users interaction with the system and collect the data observed; at the end of the test users will have to fill in a questionnaire about the system’s use aspects.

 

How frequently should the data be collected? Every user will only be tested one time, but the data will be collected in tow moments: during the test (data collected by the researcher) and at the end of it (data provided by the user).

 

By whom should the data be collected? The data will be collected by the researcher during the tests and also provided by the participants at the end of the tests.

 

How should the data be collected? The users need to be tested on their interaction with the platform by responding to a list of tasks they have to complete. As they are testing it, the researcher is observing their performance of use. At the end of the test, the users will have to fill in a questionnaire about their perspective of the system’s use.

 

Which instruments should be used? There are two separate types of instruments that will possibly be used: the investigator could use an observation grid and a performance checklist; the users may have to answer to questionnaires.

 

You will find more information on the next post!

 

Farewell.
