|Title:||IScale: Studying long-term experiences through memory||Authors:||Karapanos, Evangelos||Keywords:||Free Recall;Episodic Memory;Temporal Information;Semantic Memory;Experience Report||Category:||Computer and Information Sciences||Field:||Natural Sciences||Issue Date:||2013||Publisher:||Springer||Source:||Studies in Computational Intelligence, 2013, Pages 85-114||Abstract:||This chapter presents iScale, a survey tool for the retrospective elicitation of longitudinal user experience data. iScale aims to minimize retrospection bias and employs graphing to impose a process during the reconstruction of one's experiences. Two versions, the constructive and the value-account iScale, were motivated by two distinct theories on howpeople reconstruct emotional experiences from memory. These two versions were tested in two separate studies. Study 1 aimed at providing qualitative insight into the use of iScale and compared its performance to that of free-hand graphing. Study 2 compared the two versions of iScale to free recall, a control condition that does not impose structure on the reconstruction process. Overall, iScale resulted in an increase in the amount, the richness, and the test-retest consistency of recalled information as compared to free recall. These results provide support for the viability of retrospective techniques as a cost-effective alternative to longitudinal studies.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13314||ISBN:||978-3-642-31000-3||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-642-31000-3_5||Rights:||© 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.||Type:||Book Chapter|
