This research-in-progress paper presents our ongoing work on the effects of representational options of decision models on decision performance. With the help of eye-tracking, we want to investigate the influence of the color design of textual, graphical and tabular decision models on decision accuracy, efficiency, and cognitive load. For this purpose, we design a controlled experiment to test whether associative color-highlighting (red for negative decision outcome, green for a positive result) makes decision models easier to understand than monochromatic or non-associative color-highlighting.
