What is usability testing?
Usability testing is a method used to evaluate how easy a website is to use. The tests take place with real users to measure how ‘usable’ or ‘intuitive’ a website is and how easy it is for users to reach their goals.
What is a usability testing example?
If for example, a washing machine brand wanted to test the usability of its product, then it would have to test it on a potential customer. To understand whether or not the machine is usable, the company should pick a potential customer and give her a precise task.
The three overall usability testing types include:
Moderated vs. unmoderated.
Remote vs. in person.
Explorative vs. comparative.
When usability testing is done?
If possible, usability testing can and should be conducted on the current iteration of a product before beginning any new design work, after you’ve begun the strategy work around a brand new site or app.
