Élaboration d'un indice de complexité des éditeurs d'équations : L’exemple de la comparaison de HandiMathKey et Libreoffice

Abstract : Pupils with a grapho-motor disorder have difficulties with handwriting]. To compensate for these problems, the use of a computer is recommended but is not suitable for inputting mathematical formulae. A new software called "HandiMathKey" (HMK) has been developed to address the difficulties encountered. In order to determine whether this tool is efficient, we compared HMK and Libre Office (LO) with pupils from the sixth grade in secondary school. In order to make this comparison, standard methods (time, success...) have limitations and do not allow for a specific comparison of tasks and editors between them, nor of the procedures performed by the participants. We have therefore carried out an in-depth analysis of the task and defined variables that allow a cognitive evaluation of the activity. Based on this analysis, we were able to design a complexity index allowing the comparison of the editors but also of the participants' actual tasks and procedures. The design of this index is innovative and provides new possibilities of measurement for the study of artefact instrumentalization.
