  • Assessing suitability of similarity coefficients in measuring human mental models

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):1 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (224 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Understanding human mental models is important for designers to build their interactive systems or training programs. Human mental models can be realized and quantified through the card sorting technique and the employment of similarity coefficients. However, an apparent lack of justification for the choice of employed similarity coefficients in previous studies shows the necessity of research on ... View full abstract»
