Final Paper for Studies

If you did a study for your project, your final paper should include the following sections (and your presentation should similarly mirror them):

1. Introduction:
Summarize the research space that you are looking at and illustrate why it is important. Describe the goal of the work. You can and should take the introduction from your Literature Review paper and rework it for this paper.

2. Related Work:
Describe the related work in the area of your project. You should take your literature review and condense it down to approximately one page in length.

3. Method:
Describe the method you used as part of your project. Include: descriptions of participants, study stages and method details, sample questions, and analysis method.

4. Results:
Document the results of your project. Detail your main findings.

5. Discussion:
Discuss your work. Include between a half-page and one page of thoughts about your work now that it is complete. Answer the question: “so what?” Now that your work is done, what does it mean? Why is it important? What is still left to be done? Discuss how your work generalizes to other demographics, settings, or design areas.

6. Conclusion:
Summarize your project and your overall findings.

7. Reference List:
Include a list of the papers you read for your related work. These should be cited in the document according to their number in the list. The list should be organized alphabetically by the last name of the first author on each paper. The format of the references should follow the samples in the ACM CHI Conference format document.
