This book provides insight into a new methodology in human-centered computing research.

THEDRE (Traceable Human Experiment Design Research) is a methodology which values the integration of the individual into the construction and evaluation process of digital devices. In this book, this user-centric approach is discussed in detail, and includes an insight into its principles, theory, research methods and implementation.

The author provides the reader with the tools required to ensure research work is traceable. It develops knowledge of experimental HCCR practices among students in order to respond to emerging research, and to connect this work to quality management tools.
