Weibelzahl, S. & Chihaia, D. (2008). Evaluating the Usability of Adaptive Recommendations. In Proceedings of the workshop week Lernen - Wissensentdeckung - Adaptivität (LWA2008) , October 6-8, 2008, pp. 55-58, University of Würzburg. (pp. 55-58).

In the design, development and evaluation of adaptive systems, usability aspects are largely ignored so far. A correct but badly designed ad-aptation decision might spoil the purpose. This paper provides an example of a usability evalua-tion with an adaptive collaborative system. The results suggest that the representation format of recommendations did not strongly affect standard usability measures. However, comparing differ-ent design versions helped users to identify strengths and weaknesses.
