Case Study: How to Run an Eye Tracking Project in Under 30 Minutes

How come you can run an eye tracking test in under 30 minutes? Here is how I did it using my CoolTool account.

First, I created a project and uploaded a picture I wanted to test to my questionnaire. My goal was pretty simple - I wanted to see, which word out of these 8 would attract the most attention. I have defined my 8 Areas of Interest (Fame, Money, Success, Glory, Love, Power, Happiness, Authority), so I can get statistics on each one of them.

I launched an eye tracking data collector and sent a link to 10 people asking them to participate in my test. And here is what I got in my automated report.

"Power" turned out to be the most popular word out of eight. "Love" and "Authority" take the second and the third place respectively. 

The Gazeplot told me that people looked at "Glory" first and then switched to Fame and Money.

I spent

  • 10 minutes on preparing the test
  • 15 minutes on collecting responses - about 1 minute per respondent
  • 5 minutes on installing a NeuroLab App that is necessary for collecting responses 
  • $0 since at CoolTool I can run a project that has under 10 respondents, for free

Can you bit my 30 minutes record? :) 

Of course, I did not enable rotation/randomization for these words, which can compromise results. However, It can be easily fixed if I enable Randomization in my questionnaire and then run a test again. Now, when I think about it...I probably will do that, for the next holiday :)
