Evaluation Report, User Evaluation Video,
During the preceding
two weeks you will have conducted your user tests. During this week's
studio you will have a chance to discuss what you learned from these tests,
using several different techniques. You will submit the following items
as a result of user testing:
- A user
evaluation report. This should include:
notes from user testing
list of usability problems discovered with possible solutions
other information discovered during user testing (e.g., information
about users, tasks, etc.)
brief (1 page) report from each user test session on how the test
progressed, where the test deviated from the plans, and any changes that
should be made in the plans based on the experience. This report should
conclude with a one paragraph summary of what was learned from this user
- A user evaluation video.
Remember the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words?" This
video is your chance to give your instructor and other groups a quick
chance to see what you learned during your user testing. This video should be at least 3 minutes in length and
should summarize what you learned about your interface while conducting
the test. For example, you can use the captured "video" from your
test sessions to demonstrate users struggling with a particular task.
You also can demonstrate things that went well. Be creative, have
fun, and be willing to show your team's faults!
- Prioritized Change List. This
document consists of several things.
First, you should submit a list of design changes that you have made
(since the first prototype) or would like to make in the interface. I
recognize that you will not have time to implement all of these changes.
Accordingly, you should prioritize the list and label each item with an
importance and a difficulty rating. It is sufficient to have three levels
of each: (importance: critical, medium, low; difficulty: hard, medium,
easy). Please note which of the changes you have already made and those
you plan to make before the final deliverable.
