In the Design Evaluation Assignment, you identified a web site or application that you considered to be a poor design and one that you considered to be a good design. In this assignment, you will test the usability of these pages/applications.
Instructions
In 300 words or more, write a test plan for the applications or web pages you selected as “poor” and “good”. The test plan should include a statement of the scope or purpose of the test, a time table for the test (i.e., how long should a testing session take), the test methodology, the test participants, and the location/setting of the test.
An example of a test plan is below:
The purpose of this test is to determine the effectiveness of the search functionality of Google.
The test will be administered to five participants (subjects) one at a time in a classroom on a Windows PC. Each test should take 15 minutes. Subjects will be given a question to be answered by “googling” the topic. The number of clicks (navigation links) needed to answer the question will be used as measures of efficiency. The accuracy of the responses will provide measures of effectiveness. User satisfaction will be measured by the subjects’ responses to the question “On a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 meaning least satisfied and 5 meaning most satisfied, please rate your satisfaction with how easily you were able to answer the question using Google.”
