The three manuscripts that make up this dissertation represent three chal- lenges of modern human-computer interaction (HCI) research and provide new in- sights, strategies, and recommendations for other researchers in this domain. The relatively new and fast-moving field of UX-research as yet provides insufficient theo- retical groundwork in certain areas of interest. The first manuscript depicts the way in which a mixed-method approach, including qualitative and quantitative strate- gies, was able to reveal new dimensions of interest in the domain of challenges and avatar death in player experiences, a field previously characterized by a lack of the theoretical frameworks needed to address certain phenomena. Recent research in HCI is further complicated by the increasing trend of online data collection, a method which is concerned to provide insufficient data quality and therefore prone to failed replications or false effects. The second manuscript therefore aimed at providing a systematic analysis of a crowdsourced sample and practical recommen- dations, applying various measures to detect inattentive behavior. Lastly, a lack of common conceptual definitions, including the according measuring instruments, im- poses another challenge on UX-researchers. The third manuscript revolves around the development and validation of a measure for trust on the web, a domain which previously lacked common concepts and measures.
