Abstract:Introduction: This study served as a feasibility study for a PhD monitoring study. The current study explored the variability of self reported craving of alcohol measurements in a small group of students with the use of 'Intensive Repeated Measures in Naturalistic Settings' (IRM-NS), specifically with the use of interval-contingent and signal-contingent designs. Furthermore it explored the perceived burden and compliance of the use of IRM-NS designs and the usability of the Empatica E4 Wristlet. Method: Four students with an above average alcohol usage reported with a frequency of four times a day the amount of craving they experienced combined with wearing the Empatica E4 wristlet, both for the period of one week. Afterwards questionnaires were filled in about the perceived burden of the design. The System Usability Scale was used to measure the usability of the E4 wristlet. Results: Both designs measured variability of self reported craving. The burden of filling in the questionnaires with a frequency of four times a day as perceived by the participants was different per person. The compliance of participants was relatively low. The usability of the E4 wristlet was according to the adjective rating scale of Bangor, Kortum and Miller (2009) 'good'.
