For the HCI qualifying exam, students will read and present 3-5 assigned research papers to an exam committee. The committee will ask questions throughout the presentation regarding the content of the papers and relevant background knowledge. To pass the exam, students must demonstrate both breadth and depth of knowledge in the field of human-computer interaction. In addition to the assigned papers, students should be familiar with the content represented in the background reading list.
