Paper Abstract

This paper describes the approach and evaluation results of the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) Scientist's Expert Assistant (SEA) project. The plan describes the goals, and methodology for the evaluation. The objective of this evaluation is to provide a means for the targeted user community to provide feedback to the developers, and to determine if the advanced technologies investigated as part of SEA have achieved the goals that were to be its success criteria. We can with confidence say that visual, interactive tools in SEA were found to be highly useful by the users. On a scale of 1 - 5, where 1 was excellent and 5 was poor, the SEA as a whole ranked as 1.7, i.e., between excellent and above average.
