Abstract: To aid the development of spreadsheet debugging tools, a knowledge ofend-users natural behaviour within the Excel environment would be advantageous.This paper details the design and application of a novel data acquisition tool,which can be used for the unobtrusive recording of end-users mouse, keyboardand Excel specific actions during the debugging of Excel spreadsheets. Adebugging experiment was conducted using this data acquisition tool, and basedon analysis of end-users performance and behaviour data, the authors developeda -spreadsheet cell coverage feedback- debugging tool. Results from thedebugging experiment are presented in terms of enduser debugging performanceand behaviour, and the outcomes of an evaluation experiment with the debuggingtool are detailed.
