I think everyone’s done an incredible job on the presentation for UR4. Every group stayed in the time limit and offered a great insight of what they’ve done with the assignments.
I’m seriously impressed with some of the new ideas that some of the group had in their usability testing. Some group mentioned that they recorded the number of clicks and the path participants took to find what they believe is the correct information. We’ve thought about doing that, but we didn’t want to go through the trouble of having to watch the screen capture video to get that information. It’s nice to know that there are some software out there that does that. And one group came up with the idea of “error”. Although it was still not clear to me how they define it. But I can see their effort in trying to explain and analyze their observation.
Our group on the other hand took an rather academic approach. We did tons of research of what’s out there on the internet and tried to find the safest and most reliable way to do so. One may say that we’re being lazy. But that means you’re calling the thousands of people who used the same method before us are lazy too. We as a group are proud of what we threw together as a team in the time given. And I’m so proud of all the group members for putting so much effort into it until the very last moment.
