Outline for Today




Audio Transcript

  • Midterm!


What important concept or perspective did you encounter today?

  • This is our midterm exam date. Question was good and I have tried to all the answer of each questions.
  • Today we had our midterm so we learned nothing new but we were evaluated on things that we had learned so far. The midterm was not hard but with a tricky question regarding what is one exam question that needs recall rather than recognize.
  • I have learned today, how the ten heuristics for user centric interface design can be related to reduce the gulf of execution and evaluation.
  • No class. Midterm.
  • Questions can be made from any topic that is discussed and there is no specific template for questions
  • We had our midterm today and submitted a feedback as well.
  • Today was the midterm. I feel like it went well.
  • The most important thing for me to understand on the midterm was the last question; the question made you choose two heuristics for each gulf; so two heuristics for the gulf of execution and two heuristics for the gulf of evaluation.
  • Midterm exam
  • I took the midterm
  • We had our midterm exam today. It went pretty well.
  • There was nothing that has been discussed in today's class because we had a midterm.

  • The most important thing I learned today is that I have done my midterm
  • Today we mainly have the midterm exam

Was there anything today that was difficult to understand?

  • While I understand wanting feedback, providing a written evaluation form alongside our written midterm is a major ethics problem. There is a reason course evaluations are done at the end of term, on an anonymous website, and not made available to an instructor until grades are in. To use a metaphor, writing an evaluation alongside your midterm is like being forced to say things you don't believe while someone threatens to break something important to you.

Was there anything today about which you would like to know more?

  • Midterm day!!!
  • I would like to know more the 10 Usability Heuristics for User Interface Design, and how each fall under a gulf of execution and evaluation. Do all of the 10 Usability Heuristics for User Interface Design fall under a specific gulf, or can it overlap?
  • Now that I have given the midterm, I would like to know how did I do on it. When will we be
  • What makes a good testing interface? Writing today's in-person midterm had me reflecting on educational software. Softwares like proctortrack provide security as a trade-off for user experience. Gulf of evaluation is also important as you have to account for the many devices and environments one takes the exam in. Can an interface of testing software be created to allow large exams to be done online or has the pandemic proved interfaces with e-exams do not support learning well enough to use?
  • Today was the midterm exam but the thing I would like to know more is what we are learning next chapter.
  • Why we are always trying to distinguish usability and UX.
  • I would love to know how I did on the midterm. I feel pretty good about it though.
