- The coordinator arranges an initial team meeting, using the Breeze meeting room or other convenient venue.
- The team members identify their areas of experience, expertise, and interest in:
- Accessibility - cognitive, visual, etc
- Cognitive walkthroughs
- The team discusses the protocol (See Clayton's outline)
- What usability heuristics do the members find most suitable?
- What accessibility measures/tools are to be used?
- What user profiles are to be assumed?
- What cognitive walkthrough scenarios are to be attempted?
- What refinements are required in the protocol?
- The team assesses coverage. What areas are covered, and with how much (desirable) redundancy? What areas aren't covered? Each inspection should be done by more than one evaluator - ideally by as many as possible.
- Team member partnerships are arranged where possible to address usability and accessibility synchronously. Team leads are assigned in areas of expertise.
- The team discusses the logistics of actual inspection activities:
- What are the problems with geographically distributed teams?
- Can the Breeze facility help to overcome the problems?
- The team discusses reporting: (see Proposed Template from Daphne)
- Does the proposed template meet the team's needs?
- Are refinements to the template required?
- What additional information will be reported?
- How can results be aggregated with those from other teams (consistency, style, references to heuristic principles, etc.)
- Individual evaluations are performed by 3-5 evaluators using the (or a subset) guidelines synthesized by this group. (The 3-5 number is not an absolute requirement: only good practice, and strongly encouraged. An evaluation can be done by a single person if only one is available.)
- Findings are recorded.
