Web Usability Test Findings and Analysis Issues.
An, Jae Soon; Park, Su-Hong; Baek, Eun-Ok
This paper discusses findings and data analysis issues that resulted from a case usability test. The case usability test was conducted as part of a redesign project that aimed to update the existing home page of Indiana University Bloomington. The home page contained links to the Web sites that various institutions in the university had already created, and therefore, it functioned as a portal to various Web sites and employed hierarchical menu structure. The findings relate to the generation of design ideas. Through the usability test, it was founding that users have a somewhat unified viewpoint regarding the menus on the side areas of a Web page. They tend to view them as a "quick" way to access "specific" and "frequently searched" information. The analysis issues are concerned with analyzing task completion rate, time taken, and path taken to finish the tasks. When analyzing these measures, the researcher needs to consider nature of the Web site, portal site in this case usability test, rather than simply looking at whether and how the test participation found the answer.
