The usability test should be based on the CIF standard method and reporting format described in the lectures. Typically, students ask their friends and family to participate inusability test, or play ‘participant’ for each other – no need to approach strangers! A handful of participants is usually sufficient to cover a range of user personas and identify a range of usability issues. I know you do not have enough time to test a
