This assignment is designed to encourage you
to compare different types of evaluation methods. For example,
how does doing heuristic evaluation compare with user testing?
What are the logistical differences? Which is easier and for
whom? Which is least expensive? And so on. What results do
you obtain from each method and how do the findings differ?
After you've made your comparison, look to see what other
researchers have found in their comparisons. You can search
www.hcibib.org, the ACM
digital library (if your university is a member) or the
web for other research papers. You could start by looking
for Clair-Marie Karat's (1994) paper which is listed in the
references at the end of the book, and check-out Bill Bailey's
