    1. 1. What is Paper Prototyping? Kern Communications
    2. 2. What is a Paper Prototype Paper prototype is a very powerful and effective usability technique to design and test user interfaces. In this phase, the usability expert designs the wireframes of the complete application/website in a PPT. Each screen is then printed on paper. This is not translated to HTML pages yet at this phase.

    3. 3. How is it Done These wireframes are tested in a usability lab with a sample size of the target users. In this session, the users are asked to perform tasks as they would on the website, using the paper prototypes. They are encouraged to think aloud and the moderator supplies the relevant paper for every action, like click, dropdown, navigation to other pages or a simple scroll. Kern Communications
    4. 4. Why is it Important Paper prototyping helps test the information architecture and design of the website at a very early stage. This saves time and money since it enables developers to test interfaces before they write code or begin development. This also allows for easy and inexpensive modification to existing designs. Iterative usability testing of prototypes leads designers and developers to a progressively bug-free interface, which they can then develop with a fair amount of confidence. Kern Communications
    5. 5. When Should it be Done? This test should be conducted after designing the wireframes on paper and before the development of the application Kern Communications
