Querying Spreadsheets: An Empirical Study [article]

Jácome Cunha, João Paulo Fernandes, Rui Pereira, João Saraiva
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we present an empirical study evaluating such proposals assessing their usage to query spreadsheets.  ...  To compare these different querying approaches we present an empirical study whose results show that the end-users' productivity increases when using model-driven queries, specially using its visual representation  ...  in practice, we planned and executed an empirical study with 14 users, obtaining and recording the results of their experiences, productivity, and feedback.  ...

Embedding model-driven spreadsheet queries in spreadsheet systems

Jacome Cunha, Joao Paulo Fernandes, Jorge Mendes, Rui Pereira, Joao Saraiva
2014 2014 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
The result is an expressive and powerful query environment that has knowledge of the business logic defined by the spreadsheet data (the spreadsheet model) to guide end users constructing correct queries  ...  Spreadsheets are widely used not only to define mathematical expressions, but also to store large and complex data. To query such data is usually a difficult task to perform, usually for end user.  ...  An empirical study showed that QuerySheet greatly improves the productivity of end users when compared to the use of another querying system [16] .  ...

Design and Implementation of Queries for Model-Driven Spreadsheets [chapter]

Jácome Cunha, João Paulo Fernandes, Jorge Mendes, Rui Pereira, João Saraiva
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To validate our work, we executed an empirical study, comparing QuerySheet with an alternative spreadsheet querying tool, which produced positive results.  ...  We briefly show the design of the language and present in detail its implementation, from the denormalization of data and translation of our user-friendly query language to a more efficient query, to the  ...  Our goal is to make spreadsheet querying more humanized, understandable, robust, and productive. In order to validate our achievements, we executed an empirical study with real end users.  ...

A Spreadsheet Algebra for a Direct Data Manipulation Query Interface

Bin Liu, H. V. Jagadish
2009 Proceedings / International Conference on Data Engineering  
We built a prototype implementation of the spreadsheet algebra and show, through user studies with non-technical subjects, that the resultant query interface is easier to use than a standard commercial  ...  A spreadsheet-like "direct manipulation" interface is more intuitive for many non-technical database users compared to traditional alternatives, such as visual query builders.  ...  Not having to manipulate multiple spreadsheets simultaneously makes the spreadsheet model more user-friendly.  ...

ASAP: A Source Code Authorship Program

Matthew F. Tennyson
2019 International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT)  
Numerous methods of source code authorship attribution have been proposed and studied. However, there are no known easily-accessible and user-friendly programs that perform this task.  ...  Instead, researchers typically develop software in an ad hoc manner for use in their studies, and the software is rarely made publicly available.  ...  By clicking the Open Spreadsheet button, the spreadsheet will open allowing the user to view it. The output from an example query is shown in Fig. 2 .  ...

Case study: Old French flexional -s However, if the nature of the linguistic query requires treebank annotation, it is far less simple to obtain such a user-friendly output.  ...  Nevertheless, with around 200 hits in this text alone, this is still not a particularly user-friendly way to browse the data.  ...  Moreover, such a query would be perfectly adequate for our hypothetical corpus user who wishes to get a rough idea  ...
