In general, it is hypothesized that a cognitively engineered interface design is superior to an interface design that is not cognitively engineered. However, this hypothesis has not been empirically verified. Two decision-making tasks were used to verify the effectiveness of cognitively engineered interface design. Six cognitive engineering design principles were extracted from the literature on human-computer interaction, and explicitly applied to the interface design in each decision-making task. Reaction time and accuracy were experimentally investigated. The cognitively engineered interface was compared with an interface that was not cognitively engineered. As a result, the cognitively engineered interface was found to be superior to an interface which was not cognitively engineered across reaction time in both of decision-making tasks.
