Checklist for Planning Usability Studies

This page displays take away information I have saved from articles read focused on Testing, Usability, Accessibility. I use this as a reference point for research in the Testing, Usability, Accessibility category.

Take Aways:

  1. Define Goals for the Study

  2. Determine the Format and Setting of the Study

  3. Determine the Number of Users

  4. Recruit the Right Participants

  5. Write Tasks that Match the Goals of the Study

  6. Conduct a Pilot Study

  7. Decide on Collecting Metrics

  8. Write a Test Plan

  9. Motivate Team Members to Observe Sessions

Identify people who match your demographics (or even better: match your personas and then screen for behavioral traits, attitudes, and goals that match those of your users.
