Discussion guide

Write a usability test discussion guide for the Drupal Camp website  Your discussion guide is what you would use in an actual test session, so it should include:

  • An intro (as per Steve Krug’s) – that includes the description of the session and asking the participant to fill in a consent form.
  • Opening interview or warm-up questions.
  • 5 Task scenarios (you may decide what these tasks are).
  • Closing Interview.

Your research objective is to improve the usability of the website.

Your discussion guide should be submitted as a .PDF file and uploaded to the course Moodle page. Use illustrations if appropriate. Remember, this is a guide, not an essay. Word count is not important but ensure that the document is easy to read and to navigate – it will be used in a real-world situation as a guide for an interviewer. Submission date for the discussion guide is (to be confirmed).
