SIS Statistical Experiments

We have been engaged in several empirical experiments to gain knowledge about how users react to system interfaces. Two experiments are presently run:

The first was based on a virtual exhibit of a set of social science projects which were originally implemented for the public at the University of Bergen in 1996. The objective of this project is to study visitor behavior by recording the paths used through the exhibit. You are invited to visit our museum site.

The goal of the second experiment was to gain knowledge about how visitors perceive alternative presentations of a set of social facts. Part of the experience was presented for HICSS 2001 and published as:

Nordbotten, Svein and Joan: "Perception of Statistical Presentations - Investigated by Means of Internat Experiments", Proceedings of the 34th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, January 3-6, 2001, Maui, Hawaii (CD-ROM), Copyright @ 2001 by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. (IEEE), 2 pages.

You can read a copy as a pdf file.
