User test methodology

6 Jul

As the user tests are almost done, I can share some toughs on my methodology to capture the most information of the tests.

Gear used:

  1. Video camera (and a high tripod) -> Video recording of the tasks
  2. Microphone -> Audio recording of the user comments
  3. Application logging -> Using arthopod (see this post)
  4. Pen & paper -> Observation and note taking
  5. Audio recording device ->record the audio output of the DJ application

As far as the test outline, it is as follows:

  1. Introduction
  2. Pre-test questionnaire
  3. User Tests
    1. Task 1
    2. Task 2
    3. Task 3
    4. Small Toy Problem
  4. Post-test questionnaire/interview
