ANALYZING PARTICIPATORY DESIGN
Reduce the signal to noise ratio to eﬀectively analyze your activities. Remove the
data that you believe to be irrelevant to your research objective and desired
outcomes. Bad data leads to bad research.
If you don’t have full conﬁdence in the data point you’ve written down, you don’t trust the truthfulness of the participant, or the activity changed dramatically mid-research, you may
have to take data and/or ﬁndings out of consideration and move on. Don’t be afraid to scratch participant data to preserve the integrity of your ﬁndings.
