PROJECT TITLE :
Interaction Paradigms Versus Age-Related User Profiles: an Evaluation on Content Selection
Novel input modalities like bit, tangibles or gestures try to exploit human's innate skills rather than imposing new learning processes. However, despite the recent boom of various natural interaction paradigms, it hasn't been systematically evaluated how these interfaces influence a user's performance or whether each interface could be more or less acceptable when it comes to: one) completely different age teams; and a pair of) completely different basic operations, as information selection, insertion or manipulation. This work presents the first step of an exploratory evaluation concerning whether or not the users' performance is indeed influenced by the various interfaces. The key point is to perceive how different interaction paradigms affect specific target-audiences (kids, adults and older adults) when managing a choice task. sixty participants took part during this study to assess how completely different interfaces might influence the interaction of specific teams of users regarding their age. Four input modalities were used to perform a choice task and the methodology was based mostly on usability testing (speed, accuracy and user preference). The study suggests a statistically important difference between mean choice times for each cluster of users, and conjointly raises new problems concerning the ???recent??? mouse input versus the ???new??? input modalities.
