STATEMENT OF PURPOSEThe purpose of this research is to test the usability of a mobile application. We will be identifying the user, their goals, and specific tasks that are required to reach the users’ objectives when interacting with the application. The data gathered will be used to improve the mobile application’s design.
STATEMENT OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGYThe participants will either, complete a survey, do an interview, or test a computer based mobile prototype. Data collected on the computer prototype will use Morae software to record their actions such as mouse clicks, screen capture, audio and video. They will be asked to explain their process of thought while performing specific tasks to provide us with a better understanding of what they are doing.
