What is automated testing? Automated testing involves testing your application on many people at once, without a moderator, to get feedback about the site.
What you need A Website Goals or Key Tasks that you know about for the website. A testing application. The ability to share a link online with many.
Creating the Test Write down the key goals or tasks for the site. Identify any questions you have about how people use the site. Once you have some questions in mind, you want to start thinking about order. Don’t forget to ask people for their opinions too.
Best Practices Vet your participants. Be sure to gather information about the participants… don’t forget “other”. Identify 3 or 4 key tasks questions. If the test is longer than 10 minutes, people will most likely not finish it. Ask follow up questions: Overall, _____: 1 = Strongly Disagree to 5 = Strongly Agree Test your test!
Share the Test You’ll need to identify a way to recruit. If this is a personal site, try friends, family, social networking, etc.
If this is a business site, try feedback emails, promotions, integrating with customer service calls, etc.
