Interfaces for Intermediates
July/August 1994 (vol. 11 no. 4)
pp. 96-99

Intermediates (those who are neither beginners nor old hands, and who make up most of the user population) are perhaps the most neglected user segment in terms of interface design, yet there are possibly more intermediate users than beginners or experts. The author urges interface designers to take note of this segment and details a transitional interface well-suited for bridging the gap between novice and expert.

Index Terms:
user interfaces; human factors; interactive devices; software engineering; intermediate users; user population; user segment; user interface design; user interface optimization
