Examination modalities

Students will conduct a literature research and find one article concerning the evaluation of information visualisations. They will then present this paper in the lecture. The goal is to enable students to read and to sum up scientific papers in a coherent manner. They should also learn to present papers. In teams of 2 students they will have to do a Thinking Aloud Study and write down their conclusions and experiences. (More detailed information available in TUWEL)
