Your 101 guide to running effective usability tests
Set up your study
Conducting your test
Analysing your data
Share your results with others
Once you’ve identified the key themes from your research, it’s time to share your findings with others.
There’s no right or wrong way of sharing your findings with the rest of your team. While in some cases a simple session with your team and stakeholders to run through the themes you identified will suffice, in other cases you may have to compile supporting evidence such as quotes, audio or video clips to get others onboard.
The most important thing about usability testing is making sure the most significant findings are understood, prioritized and actioned.
Remember — usability testing is an iterative process. Each round should lead to improvements, and with time, lead to more confidence in you and your team, and a better experience for your users.
