Being an effective moderator is one of the most important skills a user experience researcher can master. Being a good moderator is more than reading from a test script, it involves all of the complex social interactions and self-awareness that is a core part of human-to-human interaction. It is extremely easy to impose our views and alter the behavior patterns of a participant. It takes time to perfect moderating skills and requires regular input from even the more experienced researchers. Constructive critiquing is a useful and productive way to get feedback and help to refine those skills.
