Abstract:

We present the Assess, Identify, Remediate (AIR) framework to integrate disparate tools and manual non-computer based methods for usability assessment. AIR is integrated into Microsoft Office so that it leverages a familiar user interface, and minimizes the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for users. It is fully extensible, so that 3rd parties can add their own tools to AIR. AIR is designed to incorporate traditional usability assessment tools (e.g., GOMS tools, video recording tools, IMPRINT), graphical user interface design tools (e.g., LiquidApps, Visual Studio), and allow creation of data capture methods for non-computer based assessment methods. AIR focuses on using commonly available technologies to maximize its adoption.
