Minimizing ecological gaps in interface design

  title={Minimizing ecological gaps in interface design},
  author={John C. Thomas and Wendy A. Kellogg},
  journal={IEEE Software},
The authors explore what they call an ecological gap between what is observed during interface evaluation in a laboratory and what happens when the interface is used in the real world. They look at the gap as it relates to users, tasks, systems, and the real-world context. They propose specific techniques to be used at different phases of development for evaluation and tuning the interfaces in a real-world context.<<ETX>>
