Usability Testing: Best Practices

  • Select 6–9 participants (9 participants can reveal 95% of potential problems)
  • Limit testing to a half hour (this will keep tester attention)
  • Be flexible in scheduling (work around the participants’ schedules)
  • How fast it takes to complete various tasks
  • How successful participants are at completing each task
  • Verbal or bodily signs about how they feel during the testing (this offers good information about the user experience(UX))
