Total Marks: 40

  • Marks Distribution: Word solution file uploaded to LMS = 20 Marks
  • Google Docs: fill up survey form= 20 marks
  • Note: solution will accept only if student will submit same solution in online form whose link is : https://goo.gl/forms/JfHgPkyZwrybYzAS2
  • Answer of every question except last two questions (number 17 and 18) should be from 0 to 1 i.e “fuzzy value” (0- any value between-1).
  • For example if you assign “0” then, it means not usable, “0.2” means 20% usable,” .5” means 50% usable, “1” means completely usable.
  • You may assign value 0.5/.4/.35 etc whatever you think is appropriate in any specific question.
  • Second last Question (number 17), where you will write down your experience of interaction.
  • Last Question (number 18), where you can pick up one or more options as an answer

Questions:

  1. Indeed, context awareness is most relevant when the environment is highly dynamic, such as when the user is mobile. Do you think so? (0- any value between-1)
  2. Do you think that enabling devices and applications to automatically adapt to changes in surrounding physical and operational environments can lead to enhancement of user experience? (0-1)

Note: Go to “Experimental Execution and Steps by step guideline to solve Q.3 to onwards to get excellent grade” below.

 Few example Scenario for question No 3 to Q No 12 are given below at the end of Questionnaire. You may use these scenarios in your solution. You are free to take some other scenario for question No 3 to question No 12.

  7. You used this context aware application in playing cricket/football/badminton etc situation. At what extent do you think application respond intelligently in this situation? (0-1)
  8. You used this context aware application in running to catch a bus/running for some rescue etc situation. At what extent do you think application respond intelligently in this situation? (0-1)
  9. You used this context aware application in eating/cooking etc situation. At what extent do you think application respond intelligently in this situation? (0-1)
  10. You used this context aware application in jogging etc situation. At what extent do you think application respond intelligently in this situation? (0-1)
  11. Do you think while moving, the interface is convenient to you by providing suitable color scheme? (0-1).
  12. Do you think while moving, the interface is convenient to you by providing suitable font size? (0-1).
  13. Do you think while moving, the interface is convenient to you and multi touch gesture involve in this interaction are usable for you? (0-1).
  14. The context-aware computing approach enables one to create a context-aware application, where all situation-optimized designs are combined in a single design.

Do you think that this context aware mobile application respond intelligently in all situations-optimized designs are combined in a single design. (0-1).

 

  1. If you are given a task to evaluate interface/s of this context aware mobile application to make it more usable for yourself, Do you suggest any change? Just mention change (long paragraph)
  2. Reason/s of change?
    (Reasons)

Reason/s of change   ( You may select more than options)

  1. What major issue/s associated with when using for different situations?
  2. Ambiguous/unclear according to situation,
  3. Incomplete according to situation,
  4. Completely useless,
  5. Partially useless,
  6. It should wait until I came out the situation and then, ask me for display
  7. It should wait until I came out the situation and then display the interface
  8. Not effective color scheme, font size
  9. While in motion, app don’t provide help about next steps
  10. Multi touch gesture interaction are less usable
  11. Application don’t provide a usable interface to user
  12. application don’t evaluate properly in the field
  13. Evaluation method don’t identify user related flaws in different situations
  14. The evaluation method don’t contain situation analysis component
  15. application don’t properly identify user activity
  16. Application identified that the person is walking/running /vehicle using sensors but, don’t identify the situation in which user activity is carried on
  17. Application identified that the person is walking/running /vehicle using sensors also identify/can identify the situation (e.g. He is already on call) in which user activity is carried on but, application couldn’t infer the situation (contextual information) and simply display the interface.
  18. Application has only one interface to display in each situation
  19. Application don’t require to have multiple interfaces
  20. Application don’t respond.
  21. Application respond properly
  22. Any Other, please specify

Experimental Execution and Step by step guideline to solve Q.3 to onwards to get excellent grade:

Following sequence will help you to get excellent grades:

My previous uploaded files are already studied by you. If you still find some issue, please first listen the files:  uploaded on Download section with the names below

  • “Assignment1 introduction and execution plan spring17”
  • “conscient context aware app”
  • “Quiz material (context aware computing, mobile paradigm, usability) spring17”
  • “Assignment1 related material spring17 textual files”

 

  • Then, listen assignment and way to solve, understand table, pick up a “gesture” like sitting, move to next column “situation” pick up first situation “Sitting at home/class/bus” and then go to third column and pick up “example Scenario number 1, execute the scenario in your mobile and observe application interface and behavior and write down in two to three lines.

 

Table: Summary of task execution

 

Gesture Situation Example Applicable Scenario
Sitting ·         Sitting at home/class/bus,

·         Praying/listening holy verses etc situation (sitting/standing),  

·         Workplace in a meeting/doing urgent work etc (sitting)

 

1,2
Walking ·         Selling or buying in a market etc situation: (walking)

·         Playing cricket/football/badminton etc (walking/running),

·         Eating/cooking etc situation (sitting/walking), Walking

  • Then, go to question number 3, give value between 0 to 1. Similarly, again take up “sitting” gesture, pick up second listed “situation” which is Praying/listening holy verses etc situation (sitting/standing) and execute scenario in your mobile device, observe and note down its behavior and display, brainstorming and thought, how much it is usable for you in that situation and gesture, then, go to question number 4, rate the question and note down your experience in one to two lines just focusing what is problem here and what your suggestion to improve….
  • Same procedure repeat until for last gesture and for last situation. And reply to questions accordingly.
  • When all this done, send me word file containing your answers and noted behavior of application.
  • At the end, by following your solution file, fill up the survey form and submit.
