Trialing methodology guidelines

The Trialing Methodology Guidelines encapsulate the practical experience gained from the trials in the WWAAC project. They give a set of concrete recommendations about the running of trials of Internet services with AAC users. Essentially, the evaluation plan consists of 8 main phases: Simulation study; Evaluation of the WWAAC web browser, alpha version; Evaluation of the WWAAC email program, alpha version; Pilot evaluation of the linguistic support module; Evaluation of the browser and email software, beta version; Longitudinal case study of the browser and the email; Longitudinal case study of the supportive writing software; and Additional investigations, or user consultations.

Since the population of AAC users is a heterogeneous one and variation is common in both performances in the use of technology, as well as in an individual's performance over time, the approach is a qualitative one and expected to be applied with flexibility.
