This page presents a template for reporting the results of a UX Walkthrough which can be used with any website or software product. Examples of product-specific templates with details of how they were used by the Fluid teams may be found at Sakai User Experience Walkthrough Report and uPortal User Experience Walkthrough Report 

Generic UX Walkthrough Report Template

This template covers accessibility and usability heuristic evaluations combined with cognitive walkthroughs.


Evaluation Completed by:    [Insert evaluator's name]

URL:  http://.... [Insert URL of the test site]

Date:  [Insert Date and time the evaluation was performed]

Heuristic reviews and cognitive walkthroughs were performed on a [computer type] at [screen resolution] resolution (most common resolution) and [color setting] colors (most common novice resolution; if graphics work at this resolution, they'll work in higher resolutions) using [Browser and Operating System] at a [type of connection is internet required] connection rate.

See Heuristic Evaluation for heuristics used in this evaluation.

Scope of Walkthrough

•    Functional Areas focused on for review 

User profile(s) and context of use:

Profiles will generally only be used for the cognitive walk-through, not the heuristic evaluation. However, users may be set up with a certain role in the system (e.g. student, instructor) for the heuristic evaluation.

•    User Profiles or Personas

Scenarios

Scenarios will generally only be used for the cognitive walk-through, not the heuristic evaluation. However, it is fine to use these scenarios for the heuristic evaluation if it is helpful to evaluators in figuring out how to walk through the application.

•    General Overview (heuristic evaluation)
•    Finding.....
•    Scenario 3
•    Scenario 4
•    Scenario 5

Assumptions for this evaluation:

•    [List any additional assumptions used in evaluation]
