Summary of CIUX interactions with prospective and representative users.

See CI Community Engagement Record for detailed dates and participants. Note that activities involving non-OOI personnel are conducted in accordance with human research practices, and detailed information about participants are protected in accordance with_ UCSD Human Research Protections Program IRB restrictions.

Where CI personnel participate in a capacity domain experts, that is, not as part of their CI responsibilities, they are counted as prospective users. CI participants are otherwise excluded in analysis of participant demographics.

Activities by Research Purpose

Coding Schema

Research Purpose

Purpose Definition
Normative Focus is on understanding the nature of the problems to be addressed, and identify characteristics of acceptable solutions. This entails understanding cognitive and demographic characteristics of potential users, the work they do, the way they currently do that work and the environment in which the work is done.
Formative Focus is on developing and refining possible solutions through collaborative interaction.
Evaluative Focus is in testing proposed solutions and representations of solutions.
