Hornung, Eva Children's evaluation criteria of search engines., 2000 (Unpublished) [Preprint]
Search engines on the Internet are widely used as a starting point for Information Retrieval. Children are increasingly users of the Internet and therefore also of search engines. Some companies and institutions have responded to that demand and have created search engines with a young target group in mind. Still, there is no study to date on how children themselves judge these search features with regards to design and functionality without having given them pre-defined "adult" criteria. This presentation, which derived from a master’s thesis completed in 2000, tries to shed some light into the dark.
