Abstract:

The last decade has seen the emergence of information processing theories of human problem solving, expressed usually as computer programs that simulate behavior. These theories have led to a resurgence of interest in protocols as a source of data, meaning the continuous verbal behavior of the subject operating under instructions to think aloud. The purpose of the paper is to discuss the analysis of protocol data and to suggest one new line of attack for strengthening it. The intent is somewhat methodological, but some new material is introduced. Author
