The project "C01: Quantifying Interaction" is part of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center TRR 161: "Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing", funded by the DFG.
The main goal of this project is the definition and validation of new quantitative measurements to evaluate the interaction with visual computing systems. This includes the development of new quantitative models, metrics and tasks to unify usability test settings as well as the integration of the theoretical and methodological findings into a framework to evaluate interaction. To this end, we will collect and develop a set of tools to ease planning, conduction, analysis and comparison of replicable quantitative experiments in visual computing systems.
We developed a theoretical model of measuring cognitive load using eye tracking technology.

Metrics and Tasks
We used well-established spatial memory task and investigated holistic metrics for it.
Feel free to read the paper Memory in Motion: The Influence of Gesture- and Touch-Based Input Modalities on Spatial Memory or use our task for your own experiment.Our talk at CHI'17 was recorded and is available online:
We further developed a well-established spatial memory task and investigated holistic metrics for it.

Jens Müller's talk at CHI'16 was also recorded and is available online:
We used a well-established sensemaking task and investigated holistic metrics for it.
