Project Evaluation Plan

From CS260 Fall 2011
Jump to: navigation, search


Review the evaluation plan you submitted in your project abstract - edit it to reflect reality and add details about carrying out your evaluation. Be brief, but concrete.


Submit a concrete plan how you will evaluate your project. You can start with your original evaluation plan, but update it to reflect the inevitable changes your project has undergone in the last few weeks. Concretely, answer the following questions:

  • What research question(s) are you trying to answer through your evaluation?
  • How will you operationalize the questions? I.e., how do you show that you've reached your goal?
  • Who will you recruit as participants? How will you recruit them? How many participants will there be?
  • When and where will you test?
  • What will the test protocol be? I.e., what tasks will participants do, and what instructions will you give them?
  • How will you analyze your results? I.e., what statistical methods (descriptive and inferential) do you plan to employ to analyze your data?

Bullet points are fine here. The main goal is to get you to form a concrete plan to carry out your evaluation on time. You must have conducted at least a pilot test by Fri, 12/2 (Draft Paper). You must show initial results by Tue, 12/6 (Presentation). You must have completed your evaluation and analysis by Monday Dec 12 (Final Paper).
