This proposal describes the development plan for the USEability Evaluation and Management (USEMAN) system that assists practitioners in the planning, management and execution of different types of usability evaluations by incorporating a variety of tools as well as automatable evaluation capabilities. USEMAN will be a modular and expandable multi-tool system that will integrate tools to assist usability practitioners and incorporate the ability to attach a multitude of optional sensors and data collection attachments. Under this effort a key innovation will be the development of the automatic data collection and analysis capability which will utilize image processing algorithms and practitioner defined areas-of-interest to assess performance on software, hardware and low fidelity interface prototypes (e.g., paper-based mockups).
