Yorkie Bars, Jammie Dodgers & Seven Other Essentials For Successful Usability Testing

Usability testing is an invaluable tool for finding out what is and isn’t working on your website, but it can feel like there’s a never-ending list of things to in order to make it happen. There are scenarios to write, participants to recruit, stakeholders to manage, rooms to book, AV equipment to wrangle and reports to write. And last but not least, lots of problems to fix once you’ve carried out your tests.

In this session I’ll share practical tips gained from the dozens of usability tests that we’ve ran in the last year at York, covering the whole testing process from figuring out what to test in the first place to making sure that your participants show up on the day.

There’ll be lots of examples taken from the tests that we’ve carried out, with advice on what software to use, processes you can follow and tips for how to be prepared for when things don’t go to plan.
