Spring’15 Class notes – Class 25: Reporting Usability Data

4 May

This class was focused on how to structure the usability report and how to report usability data.

First and foremost, figure out who your audience is for the report, what they would be looking for, and how to make it easy for them to find what they need in the report.

Other tips worth remembering:

  • present absolute numbers, not percentages, when you are dealing with small numbers of participants
  • pick the correct graph or chart to represent your data (we did an exercise in class where we discovered the stack bar graph)
  • enable quick and easy comparisons across tasks, but also present data for each task
  • remember to present and rank-order usability issues in a way that helps developers prioritize their work
