Here is a powerpoint that show OT FACT










the best example of trichotomous is  OT- FACT  

Let me find a way to get a demo to you.

basically the choices are 

a)  No problem
b)  Some problem (from minor to extreme)
c)  Can't do at all

for a and c you log it and go on. 

for b,  it opens up and asks you another trichotomous question etc. 



EXAMPLES

a) have no trouble reading 
b) have some trouble reading some things
c) cannot read at all

OR

a) have no problem reading even the smallest text on a computer
b) have trouble reading text sometimes 
c) cannot see text well enough to read it at any size



In both cases - 

if they answer b - it automatically takes them into more questions to quantify the trouble. 

helpful?

We also need to show how trichotomous branching, for example, will be used in our follow on work to capture user preferences for the various user needs in such a way to reduce the time it takes to asses these needs. We could place a matrix like this in the appendix and refer to it. This shows puts the research into a real context.

>> To follow-up on Tona's message earlier titled "PGA: wireframing first ideas", I have attempted to create the first enumeration of possible preferences for the PGA system. These preferences are based on design brainstorming (use cases and mind mapping), existing features of FLOE UI Options, and the "Cognitive Disability Matrix and Adaptations to Learn" document in the shared PGA google drive.
