Abstract
Sharik is a collaboration support tool that allows users to express and share information with team members. The key capability of the tool is enabling analysts to share their insights, discoveries and hypotheses as propositions. We treat the proposition as the basic unit of information in an analysis. To allow users to enter propositions into Sharik in a fast and efficient manner, we have devised a syntax that users can use to enter information at a command line. The purpose of this reference document is to report the results of a user study which was conducted to measure the extent to which users can gain proficiency in entering propositions using the syntax. The feedback collected indicated that although it took the participants some time to learn the concept and structure of propositions, they managed to learn and use the syntax in a fast and efficient manner.
