Using functional assessment to improve information systems research, design and technology matching

Using functional assessment to improve information systems research, design and technology matching Information systems researchers and developers require an appropriate means of assessing system user characteristics and capabilities. At this time, no such assessment measures exist. Current measurement tools are designed to assess activities of daily living, but do not transfer well to technology assessment. My dissertation work will focus on the development of a functional assessment (FA) that focuses on the capabilities that are critical for effective interactions with information technologies. This dissertation will focus on physical capabilities, using both questionnaire and computerized solutions to assess a user's relevant functional capabilities. Evaluation and comparison of assessment techniques with correlation to representative computer tasks will finalize the research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ACM SIGACCESS Accessibility and Computing Association for Computing Machinery

Abstract

Information systems researchers and developers require an appropriate means of assessing system user characteristics and capabilities. At this time, no such assessment measures exist. Current measurement tools are designed to assess activities of daily living, but do not transfer well to technology assessment. My dissertation work will focus on the development of a functional assessment (FA) that focuses on the capabilities that are critical for effective interactions with information technologies. This dissertation will focus on physical capabilities, using both questionnaire and computerized solutions to assess a user's relevant functional capabilities. Evaluation and comparison of assessment techniques with correlation to representative computer tasks will finalize the research.
