Abstract

Users attempting to interact with an application for the first time are confronted with the problem of determining which command to execute in order to accomplish their goals. A 'rational analysis' was conducted in order to determine how users ought to behave when faced with this decision problem. The resulting model is able to account at a qualitative level for a number of behaviors that users actually exhibit when trying to use a new application.
