Improving the Usability Evaluation Technique, Heuristic Evaluation, Through the Use of Collaborative Software

Paul Benjamin Lowry, Tom Roberts
2005 Social Science Research Network  
Step Two: Cognitive Bug Categorization While proximity should not affect step one, it should have dramatic effects on step two because step two involves communication among team members.  ...  Hypothesis 2d: Distributed groups conducting HE with collaborative software will report more legitimate bugs than traditional groups.  ...  This may be partially due to Collaboratus groups have far less duplicate bugs, which caused less need to sort out the duplicate bugs in Step 2.  ...

Prioritize Crowdsourced Test Reports via Deep Screenshot Understanding [article]

Shengcheng Yu, Chunrong Fang, Zhenfei Cao, Xu Wang, Tongyu Li, Zhenyu Chen
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This trend motivates us to prioritize crowdsourced test reports based on a deep screenshot understanding.  ...  Many researches have been proposed to deal with test reports based only on texts or additionally simple image features.  ...  We also conducted an experiment to evaluate the proposed approach, and the results show that DEEPPRIOR outperforms the state-of-the-art approach with less than half the overhead.  ...

Toward Building Self-Sustaining Groups in PCR-based Tasks through Implicit Coordination: The Case of Heuristic Evaluation

Paul Lowry, Tom Roberts, Douglas Dean, George Marakas
2009 Journal of the AIS  
One of the key results is that CSW groups had less duplication of effort than traditional nominal groups; these differences were magnified as group size increased from three to six members.  ...  We report on how the inexpensive UE method of heuristic evaluation (HE) can benefit from collaborative software (CSW), implicit coordination, and principles from collaboration engineering.  ...  We also thank those who conducted reviews on earlier drafts:  ...

A survey on bug-report analysis

Jie Zhang, XiaoYin Wang, Dan Hao, Bing Xie, Lu Zhang, Hong Mei
2015 Science China Information Sciences  
Lately, due to the availability of a large number of bug reports, a considerable amount of research has been carried out on bug-report analysis, such as automatically checking duplication of bug reports  ...  To review the work on bug-report analysis, this paper presents an exhaustive survey on the existing work on bug-report analysis.  ...  The first two categories focuses on presenting new techniques on detecting duplicate bug reports, whereas the last category focuses on understanding bug-report duplication.  ...

Coping with duplicate bug reports in free/open source software projects

J. L. Davidson, N. Mohan, C. Jensen
2011 2011 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
This practice can lead to more duplicate reports, as users can be less rigorous about researching existing bug reports. This paper examines how FOSS projects deal with duplicate bug reports.  ...  First, we found that contrary to what has been reported from studies of individual large projects like Mozilla and Eclipse, duplicate bug reports are a problem for FOSS projects, especially medium-sized  ...  We also thank the HCI group at Oregon State University for help in drafting and revising this paper.  ...
