15/1  Deadline

I have arranged so that there is a box for handing in individual work on paper for those who whish to do so. There is a box outside Jonas Lundberg's office in House K2, on the first floor (Swe. en trappa upp), and it should be marked with the course code. Jonas will empty it on Monday morning. This means that I also will accept electronically submitted individual work until Monday morning.

I made an example Excel-file for how to calculate SUS, including the confidence interval. You can download it here (xlsx-file).

21/11  Happy Lecturer

I'm really happy to the progress and learning evident in your literature reviews. The number of reviews with graded with 18 or more points has more than tripled from the first to the third review. This means that you are better at critical academic reading and writing now than you were at the beginning of this semester.

2/10  Note on grading

Please note that if the grading criteria says for example "5-10" of something doing 10 generally lead to more points on an assignment. Points will however be reduced if quality isn't good.

29/9  Grading

I discovered that I had made a miscalibration in the grading scale. Correct scale should be:

<50: Fail
50 for Grade 3
70 for Grade 4
85 for Grade 5

29/9  Samples of critical reviews

Here you can find some examples of how a critical review could look and some tips on how to write one: Link 1. Link 2.

This means that we have 15 minutes for each groups. Try to make the presentation of you work on less than half of that time so that you can get feedback from your peers.

18/9  Reporting an affinity diagram

There are several ways to report an affinitiy diagram result. If you make an image search on it using Google, you will find many different examples. When I did that I found a couple that I thought were better than other:

Another version that I have seen from one of the design agencies in Sweden is to simply have a presentation with one page per overarching area of concern, and then put the specific issues in the area of concern as headings. Bullets under each issue then describe aspects of the issue, and sub-bullets for single observations/insights.

10/9  Instructions for reviews

Clarified instructions for reviews to avoid misunderstandings.

Updated the titles for the lectures on Thursday. Slides are also up (see In-Class Sessions and then Lectures on that web page).
