HCIL-2003-42

Hutchinson, H. (November 2003)
Children's Interface Design for Hierarchical Search and Browse
In ACM SIGCAPH Newsletter. ACM Press, pp. 11-12. [Published Version]
HCIL-2003-42, CS-TR-4676

I propose to design and evaluate a hierarchical category browser interface for children. Previous tools for handling hierarchical data rely on text-based visualizations, lose or distort global context, and/or rely on complex abstractions, excluding children from using them. I will instead use graphic representations of hierarchical categories and animated query creation in an accessible, web-based environment to support conjunctive queries. I will evaluate this tool using iterative design and a study comparing it with a version without animated query creation.
