Sequences of operators and subgoals that accomplish a goal. Selection rules Choices between multiple methods that accomplish the same goal. GOMS Variants Keystroke-Level Model (KLM) CMN-GOMS NGOMSL CPM-GOMS Keystroke-Level Model (KLM) KLM is the simplest GOMS technique, and

uses methods in sequence form composed of keystroke-level operators. Useful for most common single-user tasks, but impractical for representing high-level tasks. CogTool CogTool is an open-source tool for KLM analysis developed at Carnegie Mellon. CogTool Comparing two designs CMN-GOMS CMN-GOMS is the first GOMS model by Card, Moran, and Newell, and uses a goal hierarchy

of methods in program form. Predicts operator sequence and execution time, and focuses attention on the methods used to accomplish goals. Natural GOMS Language (NGOMSL) NGOMSL attempts to provide a natural, welldefined, high-level syntax for GOMS, and represents methods in terms of the cognitive complexity theory (CCT) . Predicts learning time as well as execution time, and can represent the users memory usage. Q: Q: Do Dothese these theoretical theoreticalmental

But other aspects of human performance with an interface are not addressed by the simple cognitive architectures underlying the current GOMS variants. BONNIE E. JOHN AND DAVID E. KIERAS. 1996.

Introduction Goal: Extend KLM by identifying basic interaction elements for mobile phones and give performance estimates derived from user tests. KLM is a precise predictor of expert user performance when comparing designs. Q: Q: Why Why do dowe we care care so somuch much about about the

the expert expert user? user? Should Should we? we? Operators Original Operators: New Operators: Keystroke (K) Pointing (P) Drawing (D(nD,lD)) Homing (H) Mental Act (M) Response Time (R(t))

7 studies 9-19 participants per study 50% students 41% women Evaluation Conducted two scenarios for validation: KLM predicted 122 and 174 seconds. Actual result of 117 and 170 seconds. Q: Q: Can Can GOMS GOMS models, models,like like KLM, KLM,be be applied

appliedto toany any interface? interface? Q: Q: Do Do you youthink thinkthe the models models that that exist exist today today can can still still be

be used used for for interactions interactions on on the thefuture future mobile mobile devices? devices? ~ Aditi Kulkarni Conclusion We presented models of two different implementations of a real world scenario that also indicate that well grounded design decisions can be reached purely based on the model predictions.
