  22. 22. International user experience study Denise Nangle UX Researcher
  23. 23. Background  Historically, Monster delivered incremental changes to UI  Project REDUX was a redesign of the entire site, offering new products and a new user experience  We needed an objective method to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of this new user experience  Solution? Userzoom remote, international usability study  Kick off for US, UK, France, Germany and Netherlands studies in January 2009
  24. 24. Objectives  Measure user satisfaction in 5 key markets  Measure task success and efficiency and identify usability issues as users complete common tasks  Evaluate ease of use and likelihood of using Monster in the future  Collect data on users’ likes as well as their pain points  Compare results with past remote studies and develop benchmarks
  25. 25. Methodology  Recruited 250 participants per channel (total = 1250)  Each participant completed 4 tasks; each task was followed by a series of questions and a final questionnaire  Collected clickstream data to generate heat maps, which provided additional data on user behavior
  26. 26. How Userzoom is helping Monster build a better user experience  Using large sample sizes across different markets, we identify opportunities for improvement in a very short period  We capture longitudinal metrics to demonstrate improvement over time  We triangulate results with other sources of data (marketing studies, web analytics, heuristic reviews, lab studies) to help product, development and UX teams make informed decisions based on actual data  It showed us that less satisfied users are more specific in describing what they’d like us to offer, and we take advantage of that information when designing other studies  When we bring a holistic approach to our research strategy and share the entire user experience, we are building a better UX team
