CONCLUSION The field of software human factors is rising in its research needs faster than the scientific data base is growing. Additional basic research is clearly needed. Educational programs are now training future researchers and practitioners in this field. Data in laboratories and industry need to be collected more systematically and disseminated more widely. As a compendium of current methods, their descriptions and evaluations, and refer- ences to existing literature that use these methods, this report should then help coalesce the field and move it toward fruitful work in the future. 25
