This week, I’m working on the iterations of the risk-challenging interfaces that I’ll be designing. Here’s a list of the ones I’d like to create, and my rationale behind creating them.

  1. Control interface (web) – complete. Used to gauge typical response to risky situation in a non-descript digital environment where a computer is available.
  2. Control interface (mobile) – complete. Used to gauge typical response to risky situation in a non-descript digital environment where a smartphone is available.
  3. Voice interface (human-presenting). Used to gauge typical response to a risky situation when human-appearing and -sounding digital environment is available.
  4. Voice interface (machine-presenting). Used to gauge typical response to a risky situation when robotic-appearing and -sounding digital environment is available.
  5. Animated interface (pro-risk) – Used to gauge typical response to a risky situation when attractive animation and sounds are presented with the gambling option of the choice.
  6. Animated interface (anti-risk) – Used to gauge typical response to a risky situation when attractive animation and sounds are presented with the conservative option of the choice.

A datasheet will be needed to store the results of each decision when I user-test the interfaces. The datasheet will have rows for each test, and columns for the results of the choices in each test. Here’s a screenshot of an example “master” datasheet, recording simple, usable data from each test:

The ‘G’ and ‘C’ records how many users chose the ‘gamble’ or ‘non-gamble’ options for each test.

Each individual test will record more detailed information. Here’s an example datasheet for a individual test:

I’d like to get at least 20 users to try each test.
