Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Customizing or personalizing user interfaces is a current development in software design. This study empirically examines the effectiveness of the customized interface vs. the standard designer provided interface with respect to accuracy and time for completion of tasks. This study reports an experiment with organizational users performing computer tasks similar to their job-related computer activities. Performance differences between the interfaces, observed in an earlier study with student samples, were supported with organizational users. Customized interface outperformed the standard designer provided interface in our research study.
