SUE: Simplified Usability Evaluation (2000-2004)

Description

The SUE project focuses on dissemination of usability engineering competence to a wider audience. We have conducted empirical studies of web-site usability testing carried out by a diverse group of people with no formal education in software development or usability testing. Teams of four to eight first-year university students with an interest but no education in information technology were trained in a simplified approach to web-site usability testing that can be taught in one week. The objective of the project is to develop a course that provides the training of novice usability testers on practical usability testing which further enables them to conduct meaningful usability tests. The course has been modified and improved according to our evaluation of the first empirical study
