Abstract

Data utilization is an important aspect of information systems. Over the last two decades, numerous experimental studies have been conducted on user performance involving database-related tasks with certain database models and/or languages. In this paper, we propose a two-dimensional conceptual framework aimed at classifying and systematically analyzing these studies, in order to provide a bigger picture facilitating systematic understanding of this body of research. The classification exercise shows that studies involving natural language interfaces did not have very consistent findings; correspondingly, we applied the metaanalytic technique to attempt to gain insight into these differences.
