Goals

For File Uploader user test we want to consider

...

ease of use for uploading files to Sakai [fluid:to start with].

Excerpt

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?

...

Success Criteria

...

A successful design has been achieved when:

  • 80-90% of users can successfully

...

Users

...

  • upload a file from their desktop.

Protocol

Method and test coordinator script.

Users

The File Uploader will be used by a wide cross-section of students and faculty in higher educational institutions. 

...

Wiki Markup
Our access to participants is limited primarily to students over faculty.  We will try and include a few faculty.  We want to test a range of non-technical and more tech savvy students as well as faculty members of the University of Toronto.  For our formal user test with working mockup we will have 9-11 users \[combination of students and faculty, but primarily students\].

...

We'd like to include keyboard-only users in the user test if possible (can prototype handle keyboard nav?).

Our access to participants is limited primarily to students over faculty.  We will try and include a few faculty.  We want to test a range of non-technical and more tech savvy students as well as faculty members of the University of Toronto and UC Berkeley.  For our user test with working prototype we will have 5-7 users [fluid:combination of students and faculty, but primarily students].

** If doing: For earlier paper-prototyping sessions we will work with a smaller number of participants.
