They often joke that their family is God's favorite sitcom! Johnny and Stacey will bring hope, faith and laughter to your afternoon while keeping the main thing the main thing. Johnny was a 7-year-old boy when he declared to his friends that he was going to be on the radio when he grew up (they laughed) and Stacey is a Texan who still carries the swagger of her home state along with the accent. During your afternoon drive or homework hour Johnny and Stacey will find ways to bring your faith to life and your family an uplifting message to end your day with.
Part 1 (40 points): Pick a tool from Wikipedia's list of encryption tools (see blue box labelled "Cryptographic software" near the bottom). Download and install (or, if applicable, simply enable) the tool you chose. Inspired by the Johnny paper, perform an expert evaluation of the tool.You should turn in four paragraphs describing:Paragraph 1: State what tool you chose and describe the steps you took in your expert evaluation. Essentially, we want you to explain your methodology.Paragraph 2: What usability flaws identified in the Johnny paper still persist 15 years later in this tool? Describe them.Paragraph 3: What usability flaws does this tool have beyond those previously identified in the Johnny paper? Describe them.Paragraph 4: What usability flaws identified in the Johnny paper have been addressed to your satisfaction? How were they addressed?If you believe any of those paragraphs is not applicable (e.g., the tool has no usability flaws not described in the Johnny paper), instead briefly explain why you believe it is not applicable.Part 2 (50 points): You should work with either one or two partners (groups of 2-3 people) for this part of the assignment. If you really want to, you are permitted to work alone, but you will have more fun and probably learn more if you do this with partners. With your partners, observe people in a public place using a computerized system. For example, you might observe people using a public transit ticket machine, a parking garage pay station, a hardware store self-checkout machine, a library self-checkout machine, or an airport self-check-in kiosk. Stay long enough to observe both experienced and inexperienced users using the system. Alternatively, recruit a few people you know and observe them using a computer or computerized device (cell phone, microwave oven, etc.) to complete a task that you specify. Try to recruit someone who has used the device before and someone who has not.What kinds of problems did people have using the system? What aspects of the system appeared to be easy to learn? What aspects of the system appeared to be difficult to learn? What aspects of the system seemed to frustrate experienced users? Most importantly, how might the design of the system be improved?Write up a short report on your observations and recommendations to turn in. Include an appendix with photographs or sketches of key elements of the user interface you observed. The report should be 2-4 pages, plus the appendix. Turn in one report per group listing all members' names.Part 3 (10 points): With the same partners from Part 2, create2-6 powerpoint slides showing photographs or illustrations of thecomputerized system from Part 2 in action. Choose photos that make theusability aspects of the system clear. You may duplicate photos fromyour Part 2 appendix. Do not print out your slides. Instead, onemember of the team should email them before classto the instructor.Part 4 (9-unit students should not do this part. 12-unit students willreceive up to 45 points for this part): Write a 3-7 sentencesummary and short "highlight" for one optional reading assigned for eachof the following classes (3 optional readings total): January 23, 25and 30.Part 5 (officially 0 points, but you cannot pass this course unless you do this): Complete the online IRB training by following the instructions at -compliance/human-subject-research/training.html.
