Human Factors and Usability Testing Lab

The program began in 2009 to provide students with educational background and training in the various interaction design and usability testing techniques.

Missouri Western’s research laboratory for interactive design and usability testing is where much of our learning in how to do usability testing and Human Factors research takes place. Graduate students in the program are encouraged to do studies within their area(s) of interest.

As a graduate student in our program, you will use programs such as

  • Axure
  • Balsamiq

In previous semesters we have worked on the following projects:

    • Alzheimer’s Association Website- redesign for mobile
