Show Me The Rules! A User Study On Making Data Validation Rules Explicit in Spreadsheet Applications

Jessica Gava, Bruna Vilela, Elder Cirilo, Eiji Adachi
2017 Anais do Simpósio Brasileiro de Sistemas de Informação (SBSI)  
We conducted a user study to assess the effectiveness of SSVL. The results show that users using SSVL are faster and more productive in tasks involving the comprehension of data validation rules.  ...  Hiding data validation rules from users may hinder the comprehensibility and the usability of a spreadsheet, thus increasing the risks of entering incorrect data input.  ...  Section 4 presents the user study on making data validation rules explicit in spreadsheet applications. Finally, Section 5 presents our conclusions and directions for future work.  ...

The Rules of Inference

Lee Epstein, Gary King
2002 The University of Chicago Law Review  
As a result, readers learn considerably less accurate information about the empirical world than the studies' stridently stated, but overly confident, conclusions suggest.  ...  To remedy this situation both for the producers and consumers of empirical work, this Article adapts the rules of inference used in the natural and social sciences to the special needs, theories, and data  ...  A scale that is both reliable and valid displays the weight of 150 one hundred times in a row; a scale that displays a weight of 125 one hundred times in a row is reliable but not valid.  ...

Model inference for spreadsheets

Jácome Cunha, Martin Erwig, Jorge Mendes, João Saraiva
2014 Automated Software Engineering : An International Journal  
We have evaluated this technique in two ways: First, we have demonstrated its applicability by using it on a set of real-world spreadsheets. Second, we have run an empirical study with users.  ...  The study has shown that the results produced by our technique are comparable to the ones developed by experts starting from the same (legacy) spreadsheet data.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Orlando Belo for his help on running and analyzing the empirical study.  ...

An ethnographic study of distributed problem solving in spreadsheet development

Bonnie A. Nardi, James R. Miller
1990 Proceedings of the 1990 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work - CSCW '90  
Ethnographic interviews with spreadsheet users showed that nearly all of the spreadsheets used in the work environments studied were the result of collaborative work by people with different levels of  ...  In contrast to the common view of spreadsheets as "single-user" programs, we have found that spreadsheets offer surprisingly strong support for cooperative development of a wide variety of applications  ...  We are grateful to our informants for finding time in crowded schedules to talk to us, and for the careful, reflective explanations they provided about their use of spreadsheets.  ...

Symbolic Simulation: An ACL2 Approach [chapter]

J. Strother Moore
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We illustrate these ideas with a formal speci cation of a simple computing machine in ACL2. We sketch some requirements on the interface, which we call a symbolic spreadsheet.  ...  A largely unexplored but potentially very useful next step is symbolic simulation, the \execution" of the formal speci cation on indeterminant data.  ...  I am especially indebted to Warren Hunt and Bishop Brock for the current view of the symbolic spreadsheet.  ...
