Abstract

There can often be a gap between theory and its implications for practice in human-behavioral studies. This gap can be particularly significant outside of psychology departments. Most students at the undergraduate or early graduate levels are taught how to design experiments and analyze data in courses related to statistics. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of materials providing practical guidance for running experiments. In this paper, we provide a summary of a practical guide for running experiments involving human participants. The full report should improve practical methodology to run a study with diverse topics in the thematic area of universal access in human-computer interaction.
