Planned for March/April 2009 Accessibility Testing by Landmark College & ATRC


Summary to be added once test is complete.


The Simple Text Inline Edit will be used by a wide cross-section of students and faculty in higher educational institutions.

This round of testing will mostly focus on users who use assistive technologies (i.e. keyboard-only users, screen reader users).


This test should discover:

  • Is the rollover highlight and the tool tip enough for discoverability (or do we need a more permanent visual indicator like a faint outline)?
  • Do users realize fields are editable?
  • Are users successful at editing simple text?
  • Do users understand how edits are saved (clicking outside the field)?
  • Are visual affordances meaningful and helpful to users?
  • Is it obvious to the user that an edit has been made?
  • Do users realize they can undo an edit by clicking on the "Undo" icon?
  • Do users realize they can redo an edit by clicking on the "Redo" icon?

Success Criteria

A successful design has been achieved when:

  • 80% of users realize they can edit inline.
  • 90% of the users that realize they can edit inline can successfully make inline edits.
  • 90% of users that make inline edits recognize whether or not an edit has been successful.
  • 80% of users realize they can undo an edit by clicking on the "Undo" icon
  • 60% of users realize they can redo an undone edit by clicking on the "Redo" icon


Method and test coordinator script.


The goal is to test across a range of users in higher education.  We want to get feedback from a variety of roles, experience levels, time and level in school, institutions, etc.  For more on choosing and recruiting users for testing see [fluid:Selecting and Recruiting User Test Participants].

Interaction Design

Underlying design patterns and description of component behavior.

Test Environment

Location and version of the environment to be used. Attach a screenshot of the environment at the time of testing if the environment will change over time.
