We are doing user studies to help us understand how to help people understand and navigate complex information about programming documentation, specifically in OCaml. You will complete a series tasks that help us understand working memory and how you navigate a new interface. After examining a layout of the data (interface) for a short, predetermined amount of time, you will be asked a set of comprehension and/or qualitative questions to measure whether the methods of presenting this information has any impact on your performance.
The study will take around 55 minutes, and you will be entered into a lottery for a $150 Amazon gift card as compensation for your time.
A bit more about this study
The user study will be done virtually on Zoom. You will be asked to various tasks with the interface. The interface is deployed as a public web application so you don’t have to install anything. This research is governed by Harvard University’s Committee on the Use of Human Subjects.
You also don’t have to be an expert in anything to participate. You just need to be fluent in English and over 18 years of age.
If you are interested, please fill out this survey to confirm your eligibility, and we will follow up to schedule the study session: https://forms.gle/q6vkyEE2tSjjZoiSA
