Chapter 8: Simple Quantitative Analysis


Cap4104 human technology interaction

CAP4104 : Human & Technology Interaction

How do you feel about e-readers?

Responses to this will be varied and may include that they are cool, lightweight, easy to carry, too expensive, difficult to use, too complex, etc.

If you have 8 to 10 responses this may not be bad but if you have many more then

It becomes harder to process the information.

Let us suppose that instead of asking: How do you feel about e-readers?

You ask: Are e-readers easy to handle or cumbersome? This clearly reduces the number of answers to:

Easy to handle, cumbersome, and neither

The initial analysis of this data might look like this:

Initial data analysis for the question “How do you feel about e-readers?”

14 out of 26 (54%) think it is easy to handle.

5 out of 26 (19%) think they are cumbersome.

7 out of 26 (27%) think they are neither easy to handle nor cumbersome.

Another alternative which might be used in the questionnaire is to phrase the question in terms of Likert scale, such as the one below:

In your opinion, are e-readers easy to handle:

Strongly agree agreeneither disagree strongly disagree

In this case we are changing the data we are collecting and we can not say anything

about whether respondents think e-readers are cumbersome.

We can also say, for example 4 out of 26 (15%) disagree with the statement that

E-readers are easy to handle ( and of those, 3 (11.5%) strongly disagree).

Initial analysis might involve finding out averages and identifying any outliers.

(i.e. values that are significantly different from the others)

Producing graphical representation of data helps to get an overall view of data and any

other patterns it contains.

The next examples shows data that was collected to show:

The experience of users

and

the number of errors made while trying to complete a control task

If we add one more user to Table 1 with an error rate of 9 we can see how

using a scatter diagram helps to identify outliers in your data quite quickly.

The data in the table below represents the time taken for a group of users to select

and buy an item from an online shopping website.

Using a spreadsheet application we will generate a bar graph and a scatter graph.

From this representation we will make two initial observations about the data that

might form the basis for further investigation.
