Documents and processes that you will need for the usability test
Online templates and other test materials can be found in Week 4 Learning Materials
How to prepare a test plan
Step 1: Gather information and identify tasks.
Identify user profiles, market segments and aspects of the website that you will test.
Step 2: Screeners, tasks, and scenarios
Use the user profiles and draft a screener/questionnaire to identify the right participant in your test. Focus on the unique attributes that the user must have
Define tasks that the users you recruit will perform. Please note that if the user requires an account, you must provide the account details to the user and avoid asking the user to create a new account. The task must not specify to log in, this is a step that the user decides to take if found necessary.
Step 3: Test script, Observation Sheet, and Consent Form
- A script to be read by the facilitator to the participant on the day of the test. The script must welcome the participant and provide them with the necessary information about the test
- An observation sheet to note down your observation during the test
- A consent form to be filled and signed by the participant
Step 4: Checking
Do a run-through of the entire test to ensure that it will take no more than 45 minutes of the user’s time. Assume that the tasks will take 3-10 times the time an expert takes to do the task. (See Kuniavsky 2012, p285).
- Do I have a good number of varied tasks? // 3 – 5
- Is the task too easy for the user? //It shouldn’t be
- Is the task realistic? // It must be
- Will the user I recruit be too familiar with the task? //It shouldn’t be
Submission Quality and Marking Philosophy
As a general rule for each mark, 50% indicates that it was submitted, 75% that it is done correctly, and 100% indicates a quality submission. See the rubric for more detail.
Where to submit?
The test plan should be submitted via Blackboard
Plagiarism Checking via the Turnitin Originality report (via the Canvas submission)
Any templates or information that you gather from other sources should be referenced in Section 8: Source documents. Since your submission contains templates it would not be surprising if the Originality Report percentage is very high.
You should make sure that your input in the following sections is unique:
Section 1: Participant and Recruitment Summary
Section 7: User Task Sheets (for participants)
