The University of Texas at Austin (UT) Texas Advanced Computing Center’s (TACC) Expanding Pathways in Computing (EPIC) STEM Evaluation Services was funded by NSF to design and conduct an external evaluation and technical review of HydroShare’s user experience. Beginning in March 2021, EPIC used a mixed methods approach to assess users’ perceptions of and experience with HydroShare’s core services and features, the system’s effectiveness and resulting outcomes and impact, challenges and technical issues experienced, and recommendations for strengthening the system and its accessibility.
The primary questions addressed through the HydroShare user experience evaluation are as follows:
1. Who is using HydroShare? For what research or work are they using HydroShare?
2. What are users’ perceptions of and experience with HydroShare services and features?
3. What outcomes and impact has HydroShare had on users’ research and the broader community?
4. What challenges and/or technical issues do users experience when using HydroShare?
5. How accessible is the system for individuals with special needs?
6. What are recommendations to strengthen the accessibility and effectiveness of HydroShare
services, features, resources, and supports?
This report summarizes findings and recommendations from the technical review and external evaluation of HydroShare’s user experience using data collected from April-November 2021, including
usage data, user surveys, user interviews, stakeholder interviews, and user micro-surveys.
