Eliciting requirements is a crucial process in developing software as requirements gathered from this process will indicate on whether the developed system will function correctly or not. Beginner usually tends to follow techniques that they are familiar with in order to elicit requirements. Ethnography is rarely implements by beginner as they are not well acquaintance with this technique. This paper will discuss on experiment done by groups of beginner to compare between ethnography and interview technique, a conventional method. Groups of beginners are assigned to execute both techniques and the results are compared to see any significance differences in both techniques.
