Notes for Test Coordinator

Offering help during the test

Don't offer help; let the user attempt to perform the task themselves. If they ask for help reply with:

  • "What do you think you/that would do?"
  • "What do you think that means (e.g. the red bars)?"

You want to observe whether users are able to:

  • understand how the pager operates
  • navigate to the desired page

Post-test Questionnaire

Note: Have participants fill out this questionnaire on paper.

Post-test Questions

Note:  Ask these questions verbally after the participant has filled out the questionnaire

  1. How often do you change the page size?
  2. Do you generally prefer a long page or a short page?
  3. Does it depend on the context? 
  4. Which are you more inclined to use when navigating through the list?
  5. The page links or the next/previous buttons?
