  • 17. Test Description • “The goal of this study is to evaluate how people find information using our website. I will ask 15 questions and would like you to think out loud while looking for the answer. I will time you, and will stop you after 3 minutes have passed. Don’t worry if you can’t find the answer every time–we are testing our Web site, not you! Each answer can be found using the library’s Web site. The test should take no more than 20 minutes. Do you have any questions?”
  • 18. Volunteers
  • 19. Administer the test • Think of this step as the consumer “taste test” • Administering the test is the easiest part of a usability study. • read the explanation, whip out your stopwatch, and say “go.”
  • 20. Analyzing the test
  • 21. Here are some common types of problems you’ll find: • Wording Problems • Design Problems • Complete your usability test, redesign, and then … do it all again.
