International Journal of Arts and Technology (IJART), Vol. 5, No. 2/3/4, 2012

Abstract: This paper describes an investigation of different variations of the robotic intervention protocol, a method for obtaining verbalisation data from children during evaluation that involves using a social robot as a proxy for a test facilitator to prompt, ask and help children, and thus encouraging them to verbalise their thoughts and experiences. A number of variations of this verbalisation protocol were implemented and tried out, leading to guidelines for the application of the method and for the implementation of social robots aimed to support it.
