  • User Testing Scenario


    Users for first test?

    My target is the local elderly people. I am going to have a meeting with NFP to decide specific place.

    What criteria will you use to select the individuals who will test your prototype?

    This is very important point for my user testing. There are two kinds of people in the criteria. One is elderly, and the other is care worker. The users must be both two people who need care and care worker together, so that I can test if my prototypes can realize their collaboration. This is the first step.

    What type of environment will you test them in?

    I would like to test in senior center in NYC. There are both people who need care and care workers. For recording this user testing, I would like to take pictures or video which is for interview with them and recording their collaboration.

    What type of relationship do you need with your NFP and users to conduct your test?

    Now I am contacting with my NFP to achieve this user testing. I have to prepare for user testing, and there are necessary items to do that such as several prototypes, camera, note, and book which is instruction but very nice looking. Also I have to ask my NFP if there is limitation for recording user testing.
