This Field Investigation Seminar focuses on the identification and specification of user needs or information requirements and its practical applications. The course investigates usability and its consequences for information design in regard to hard copy documents, screen displays, presentational materials, user interfaces and other information system displays and reports. This course stresses the importance of choosing the appropriate user test for the test goals. Particular attention is paid to creating testable objectives, conducting pilot tests and user tests, and analyzing test results, as related to the applied nature of possible field projects. This course focuses on methods from perspectives grounded chiefly in cognitive psychology.
