Users for first test? My product targets the local Indian market, specifically the middle and upper class. My user group for the first test therefore, will be middle/upper class Indians (in India).
What criteria will you use to select the individuals who will test your prototype? I will select individuals to form a controlled group that I will use for all three tests. The group will consist of Indians in India, both men and women, who belong to the middle/upper class, and whom are settled in terms of their career and support themselves financially. I do not know them personally, but have access to them through one of my contacts in India.
What type of environment will you test them in? I will test them in their own home in order to get a sense of their living environment and their taste, and perhaps get an idea of whether my design will be successful in this market.
As I will not be able to travel to India to conduct the test, I have found someone in India who will be administering the tests. This individual will take photo and written documentation and send it back to me.
