Ani Grubišić, Slavomir Stankov, Marko Rosić, Branko Žitko
2009 Computers & Education  
We believe that every effectiveness evaluation should be replicated at least in order to verify the original results and to indicate evaluated e-learning system's advantages or disadvantages.  ...  We call it a pre-and-post test control group experimental design with checkpoint-tests.  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been carried out within scientific project 177-0361994-1996, ''Design and evaluation of intelligent e-learning systems", funded by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports  ...

Formalization of Evidence: A Comparative Study

Pei Wang
2009 Journal of Artificial General Intelligence  
This article analyzes and compares several approaches of formalizing the notion of evidence in the context of general-purpose reasoning system.  ...  In each of these approaches, the notion of evidence is defined, and the evidence-based degree of belief is represented by a binary value, a number (such as a probability), or two numbers (such as an interval  ...  In P K (H|E), roughly speaking both E and K provide evidence for the system's belief on H.  ...

Acceptance or Appropriation? A Design-Oriented Critique of Technology Acceptance Models [chapter]

Antti Salovaara, Sakari Tamminen
2008 Future Interaction Design II  
Technology acceptance models are tools for predicting users' reception of technology by measuring how they rate statements on a questionnaire scale.  ...  It has been claimed that these tools help to assess the social acceptance of a final IT product when its development is still underway. However, their use is not without problems.  ...  A system is appropriable if a user can easily learn how the system's functionalities can serve as resources for action.  ...

Verifying a signature architecture: a comparative case study

David Basin, Hironobu Kuruma, Kunihiko Miyazaki, Kazuo Takaragi, Burkhart Wolff
2007 Formal Aspects of Computing  
We report on a case study in applying different formal methods to model and verify an architecture for administrating digital signatures.  ...  Contrary to common belief, our case study suggests that Z is well suited for temporal reasoning about process models with complex operations on data.  ...  Finally, while we learned much ourselves from this comparative case study, and hope that others can also profit from it, it is of course only one data point documenting the issues and tradeoffs involved  ...

A Comparative Longitudinal Study of Non-verbal Mouse Pointer [chapter]

Murni Mahmud, Adam J. Sporka, Sri H. Kurniawan, Pavel Slavík
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This study combines the quantitative and qualitative methods to get a better understanding of novice users' experience over time. Three hypotheses were tested in this study.  ...  A longitudinal study of two non-speech continuous cursor control systems is presented in this paper: Whistling User Interface (U 3 I) and Vocal Joystick (VJ).  ...  Therefore, it is important to study users over time as they develop expertise in using the systems to answer a key question of how the user's experience of a system's usability changes when they transform  ...

Recommender Systems: Between Acceptance and Refusal

Thomas Neumayr, Mirjam Augstein
2012 Mensch & Computer  
This paper presents a study analyzing how and to what extent different factors like transparency or controllability influence acceptance in the context of web-based recommendation.  ...  As authentic usage depends on a user's acceptance, the success of RSs in general is strongly dependent on acceptance also. If recommendations seem inappropriate, the trust in the system will fade.  ...  Acknowledgement Please note that this paper contains a condensed summary of the findings reported in the first author's master thesis (Neumayr, 2012) .  ...

Student Misbehavior In Agricultural Education: A Comparative Study

D. Barry Croom, Gary E. Moore
2003 Journal of Agricultural Education  
However, there could be cause for concern when one realizes that the number one problem found in previous studies, "exhibiting an ambivalent attitude," slid to a 20 th place ranking.  ...  No misbehaviors received a rating higher than 2.0 on a scale that had 4.0 as the critically disruptive behaviors, indicating that student misbehavior is not a serious problem in agricultural education.  ...  A noticeably different behavior was defined by the researchers as moving 15 or more positions in the ranking in the 2000 study as compared to the mean ranking of the previous two studies.  ...
