Apple and Lisa are registered trademarks of Apple Computer, Inc. Regarding the Lisa computer workstation, a disclaimer is in order: The Lisa workstation was not necessarily intended to be learned without instruction. Indeed, the system was accompanied by documentation, and an on-line tutorial on basic elements of user. We know of no software system, Lisa included, that claims to be so intuitive for users that they can simply walk up and use it without training or effort. This is a worthy goal, however, and we were interested in the extent to which the Lisa approximated this possibility through its graphical direct manipulation interface style.

Acknowledgments. We thank John Gould, Jakob Nielsen, and Robert Campbell for useful comments on earlier presentations of the research reported here, and we thank Robert Hoffman for extensive comments on the current chapter. This chapter is based on a presentation, "Coaching Computer Users as a Technique for Software Evaluation and Design," given at the Seventh Annual Adelphi Conference on Applied Experimental Psychology: Expert Systems and the Psychology of Expertise, May 5, 1988, Adelphi University, Long Island, New York.
