Think-aloud interviews

Alex Reinhart – Updated November 6, 2019 notebooks ·

Think-aloud interviews are widely used in usability testing, education, and related fields to see how people approach tasks. In education research, they can be used to learn how students think about tasks, elicit common misconceptions, validate possible assessment questions, and assess whether students develop “expert” thinking skills.

Modesty forbids me from mentioning our paper on think-aloud interviews of introductory statistics students.
