I’m not gonna lie: as I type this after waking up to a world where we’re going to have a “President Trump,” I’m more than a little distracted. But I also feel like I need to go on– maybe you do, too– which brings me to this discussion: how did you your pre-test for usability for your web site go? Or how is it going?
Remember that by now, you were supposed to do this simple pre-test. Here’s how I describe it in the assignment itself:
The first is a “pre-test” of sorts: you will create a sketch or a wireframe of the site you are working on/planning and get some basic feedback. The goal here is to help steer your project in the right direction before you get too far into it. You will report about your pre-test usability test
both in a brief (1000 word or so) essay andin class discussion.
Note that I changed that write-up part of it, though we are still having the class discussion part (here!) and this is an experience you’ll probably want to write about in the final essay that you’ll complete at the end of the term/end of this project. But for now, let’s hear how the pre-test part is going.
