Modeling Web Search Behaviors: Second Embedding Task

In this second data-analysis chapter, only the web search behaviors of the translation students for Task 2 are examined and compared to their behaviors for Task 1. That is, the two participants of the pilot study (Bob and Daniel), who did not carry out the second task, are excluded from the data analysis presented in this chapter. As with Task 1, however, the data analysis for Task 2 will also follow a four-step path of looking at (a) the participants’ search needs, (b) search processes, (c) search goals, and (d) search outcomes for translation problem solving.
