This paper reviews intuitive software design and outlines the development of an instrument for analysts to evaluate the intuitiveness of software design. Current intuition research outlines three requirements for intuitive use: (a) existing experiential domain knowledge and skills, (b) an unexplainable perception that a novel situation is contextually familiar, and (c) successful application of users’ previously acquired experiential knowledge and skills. A case study illustrates how these requirements can be specified, implemented, and evaluated. Questions to evaluate the characteristics of intuitive design and use resulted in an intuitive use evaluation of 3.2 on a scale of 0–4, indicating a perception of intuitive use. Subsequent factor analysis exposed three factors describing intuitive use: (a) Familiar User Expectations, (b) Confident Interactions, and (c) Leverage of Prior Learning. These factors map one-on-one to the requirements for intuitive use: providing an early confirmation of the proposed structure for analysis of intuitive software design and use. ...

Kaijanaho, Antti-Juhani (University of Jyväskylä, 2015)Background: Programming language design is not usually informed by empirical studies. In other ﬁelds similar problems have inspired an evidence-based paradigm of practice. Such a paradigm is practically inevitable in ...
Building Bridges - How secondary school pupils bring their informal learning experiences into a Content and Language Integrated (CLIL) classroom Jakonen, Teppo (Centre for Applied Language Studies, University of Jyväskylä, 2014)This article explores how students’ informal language learning experiences with English find their way into the formal context of content-based language teaching (CLIL). The analysis is focused on stretches of classroom ...
An Information Systems Design Product Theory for Software Project Estimation and Measurement Systems Forselius, Pekka; Käkölä, Timo (IEEE, 2009)There is relatively little research on software Project Estimation and Measurement Systems (PEMS). Commercial PEMS vary in functionality and effectiveness. Their intended users thus do not know what to expect from PEMS ...
