Excellent usability test idea

May 22, 2009 at 5:38 am

I added some links to my resource page because I read Aaron Schmidt’s post a few weeks ago and got inspired to try some different usability methods. 5-second Tests seem like a great way to test variations of a design. I’ve been looking for quick and easy ways to test small content blocks on our site, and this may be the best option. There’s even a site to help you do it.

The great thing about the fivesecondtest site is that you can participate in tests of other interfaces and you will come away with useful ideas to apply to your own design. NYPL’s Infomaki does the same thing. They’ve created their own usability test site, and I spent a fair amount of time answering questions just to see the types of things that they were asking – it’s sort-of addicting!
