Thinking about methods

Thinking about methods:

When I do new experiments, I want to include 5-10 participants in each condition who do think-alouds, then do protocol analysis on the think-alouds.  It probably wouldn't be to hard to ask MTurk participants to record their voice as they go through the task.  Otherwise, just bring people into the lab.

Verbal Reports as Data

I also want to be sure to do normative analysis prior to descriptive work, along the lines of Anderson's rational analysis.

  1. Don't you need more than 5-10 people? People will say vastly different things...
