I conducted my prototype testing 2/20 at Literacy Assistance Center, which is a non profit organization dedicated to support and promoting the expansion of quality literacy services in New York. In my user testing, I showed my illustrations to people there without showing text information and ask them to answer what they think each illustration is supposed to mean. Over all, I would say that most of my illustrations are interpreted as I intended, however there are some exceptions of course. I am not going through every single point they mentioned to refine my design here because I think I need more test results to see which points are most relevant and which ones I should redesign my illustrations based on. I really need to sum up all tests results I am going to get through other test methods as well including online survey and testing with random people. From there I will start to analyze them to figure out what makes my design illegible and how I can make them better. In general, one of things I noticed during my testing is the fact that the older test subjects are the harder for them it is to get a correct answer. This is a very obvious result I witnessed in my test. It makes me think that I should take their literacy level into consideration as a first priority while designing my illustrations.
