Abstract and Keywords

Cognitive engineering represents instantiations of hypotheses for how technology or procedures will improve cognitive processing and, in turn, performance or satisfaction. Evaluation provides the data indicating whether these hypotheses are supported or not. Such data are critical to obtain as early in the development process as possible when enhancements can be made most cost-effectively. This chapter presents three examples illustrating the importance of evaluation for cognitively engineered systems and procedures. It concludes with answering often-asked questions and considering future directions.

Keywords: evaluation, cognitive engineering, systems engineering, testing, usability
