The Experience Sampling Method (ESM) introduces in-situ sampling of human behaviour, and provides researchers and behavioural therapists with ecologically valid and timely assessments of a person's psychological state. This, in turn, opens up new opportunities for understanding behaviour at a scale and granularity that was not possible just a few years ago. The practical applications are many, such as the delivery of personalised and agile behaviour interventions. Mobile computing devices…

TLDR
The extension of Jeeves is described, the authors' visual programming environment for ESM app creation, in which additional functional requirements were implemented, derived from a survey and analysis of previous work.
End-User Development in Social Psychology Research: Factors for Adoption
Psychology researchers employ the Experience Sampling Method (ESM) to capture thoughts and behaviours of participants within their everyday lives. Smartphone-based ESM apps are increasingly used in
The Experience Sampling Method on Mobile Devices
TLDR
An overview of the history of the ESM, usage of this methodology in the computer science discipline, as well as its evolution over time, is provided and important considerations for ESM studies on mobile devices are identified.
Overcoming mental blocks: A blocks-based approach to experience sampling studies
TLDR
It is demonstrated that blocks programming simultaneously lowers the barriers to creating simple study protocols, while enabling the creation of increasingly sophisticated protocols.
Using Smartphones to Collect Behavioral Data in Psychological Science
TLDR
The lessons from the first wave of smartphone-sensing research are drawn to highlight areas of opportunity for psychological research, present practical considerations for designing smartphone studies, and discuss the ongoing methodological and ethical challenges associated with research in this domain.
Smartphone-Based Experience Sampling in People With Mild Cognitive Impairment: Feasibility and Usability Study (Preprint)
BACKGROUND Daily functioning of people with cognitive disorders such as mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is usually depicted by retrospective questionnaires, which can be memory-biased and neglect
Smartphone-Based Experience Sampling in People With Mild Cognitive Impairment: Feasibility and Usability Study
TLDR
Support was found for the general feasibility of smartphone-based experience sampling in people with MCI and momentary data can increase the insights into daily patterns and may guide the person-tailored development of self-management strategies in clinical settings.

TLDR
Recommendations for the design of EUD tools allowing non-programmers to develop apps to collect data from participants in their everyday lives, known as "experience sampling" apps are established.
Assessing the Influence of Physical Activity Upon the Experience Sampling Response Rate on Wrist-Worn Devices
TLDR
This work explores how physiological sensing on commodity-level smartwatches can be utilized in triggering ESM prompts and creates Experiencer, a novel ESM smartwatch platform that allows studying different prompting strategies.
Designing an Experience Sampling Method for Smartphone Based Emotion Detection
TLDR
This work proposes a two-phase ESM design, where the first phase balances between probing frequency and self-report timeliness, and in parallel, constructs a predictive model to identify opportune probing moments to further improve response quality by eliminating inopportune probes.

Anticipatory mobile computing for behaviour change interventions
TLDR
This work proposes harnessing pervasive computing to not only learn from users' past behaviour, but also predict future actions and emotional states, deliver interventions proactively, evaluate their impact at run-time, and over time learn a personal intervention-effect model of a participant.

TLDR
AndWellness, a personal data collection system, uses mobile phones to collect and analyze data from both active, triggered user experience samples and passive logging of onboard environmental sensors to better understand a user's health related habits and observations.
Contextual dissonance: design bias in sensor-based experience sampling methods
TLDR
It is demonstrated that different single-sensor sampling strategies will result in what is referred to as contextual dissonance: a disagreement in how much different behaviours are represented in the aggregated sensor data.
