The usability test should be based on theCIF 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 tocover a range of user personas and identify a range of usability issues. I know you do not have enough time to test a

Will be different to the aims of the whole project, and may have evolvedsince the project definition. The overall aim may be broken down into a number of evaluation objectives (the‘big questions’ for your study to answer – see Problem Statements in workshop), and explained3 Study Method(include rationale for decisions made)3.1 Experimental Design(e.g. one-shot, comparison, or repeated measures (for learnability))3.2 Participants3.3 Tasks3.4 Metrics3.5 MaterialsIdentify and give reasons for form.Include blank copy in Appendix.3.6 Procedure3.7 Expected Results4.
