Summary

  • When asked to find a specific student, all users tried to type in the given name in the Find field and do a search.
  • All users wanted to increase the page size, to varied extent. Tech-savvy users tend to look for "Show All" option.
  • When they are given the total number of pages, they are likely to notice the how many pages there are first (rather than how many items they are), and finds this helpful.
