D2.5.1 SUMMARY_OF_HANDS_D2.5.1 The document reports findings from testing of HANDS Prototype 2, from research activities done in Work Package 2 (Cognitive Psychology), coordinated by research teams at ELTE University, Budapest, and Autism Foundation, Budapest.. Following an introductory overview of the applied methodology, it sumaries results from the following six primary sources: (1-2) skill-level findings from a controlled efficiency testing by the Social Rsponsiveness Scala and the HANDS Follow-up Questionaire; (3) specific-level findings by the newly-developed Experimental Task Analysis methodology; (4) findings from an eye-tracking study; (5) findings from a re-analysis of some of the above findings in connection to the log-file data. At the end, an overall summary of conclusions related to both Prototype 2 and the overall efficiency research in the HANDS Project is offered.
