User Testing

Completed Testing

Uploader User Testing - Round 1

Research questions/goals include:
  • Do users realize they can upload files?  Do they realize they can upload multiple files?
  • Are users successful at uploading a file in general?  A single file from their computer?  Multiple files from their computer?
  • Can a user find a particular file easily?
  • Do users recognize and understand intuitively how to upload files?
  • Is pause/resume upload understandable or does this confuse them
  • Does the user understand that you cannot "cancel" the upload until you first "pause" the upload? Is differentiating between paused and not paused states understandable to users?
  • Are visual affordances meaningful and helpful to users?

This test should discover:

  • Whether there is a need for the users to be able to pause or cancel the upload
