Evaluation ergonomique des interfaces utilisateur : un pas vers l'automatisation

Abstract : Until now, Human-Computer Interaction has been primarily concerned with the development of models and tools to assist the construction of user interfaces. In the interface development iterative process, evaluation is often neglected by the developers or is the product of craft approaches. Our goal is to provide an automatic help to increase evaluation performance. After a review of the state-of-the-art, we submit two frameworks to classify actual evaluation techniques and task analysis mechanisms. We then present EMA, an automatic analysis mechanism for the ergonomic evaluation of user interfaces. The analysis uses three sources of information: a set of heuristic rules that model patterns of behaviour, a data-flow oriented dialogue model of the tested interface, and the acquisition, during the interaction, of the end user's actions. EMA is today a usability anomalies detector. In the long term, EMA extensions consider providing a software usability explanatory critic, as well as a corrective critic.
