New Approaches to Data Collection and Analysis in Online Reading Studies.
McEneaney, John E.
This paper describes new approaches to data collection and analysis utilizing technology-assisted methods that are now possible in online studies of reading. Two techniques are described in detail, one supporting a non-intrusive method for real-time data collection during online reading, and a second describing a new method for visualizing and assessing user navigation in hypertext. Results of applying the methods in a series of empirical studies will be described along with suggestions for other applications. Contains 2 tables and 2 figures of data. (Author/RS)
