Evaluation of Interactive Systems
This is a project-based course designed to provide you with the
knowledge and practical experience of interactive system
evaluation, a.k.a. usability testing. In this course, you will
learn usability testing principles and strategies for planning
and conducting a test in a usability lab. Once the basics are
established through early class meetings and online discussion,
you will focus your efforts on working with your team to plan,
prepare, and conduct a usability test, then analyze and present
the results in a written report, and oral presentation.
Highlight of the course is usability testing with users that
students will conduct in the well-equipped lab at iSchool.
