IMPReSS Usability Workshop

blank.gifEnd users from the IMPReSS SDP point of view are application developers. 10 students from UFPE (who fit the description of prospective application developers) acted as our end users for the usability evaluation. They had not previously been involved in the IMPReSS project.

The usability evaluation workshop which combined power point presentations to briefly introduce the tools and tasks followed by the participants actively working to resolve the given tasks for each tool . Participants were given a print out of the accompanying tutorials which explain the functions of the respective tool and as such were working under similar conditions as future application developer users of the IMPReSS SDP.

Due to restraints, only five preconfigured machines with a running IMPReSS SDP environment were provided to the participants, which meant that they had to work in pairs to complete the task and that each group completed different tasks. Participants were free to ask questions during the tasks.

Immediately after participants had completed a task, they each filled out the provided User Experience Questionnaire (UEQ) individually (and anonymously) and handed it back to the workshop moderator. Any additional feedback was also recorded. The questionnaires have been analysed using the Data Analysis Tool provided with the UEQ and the consortium are very pleased with the results.

The results of the usability test and other user validation activities will be published in deliverable D8.5 Platform Analysis and Feedback Report which will be publicly available on the project website once it has been reviewed and accepted by the EC (expected ready for download in May 2016).

You can also read more about the usability workshop in the forthcoming project newsletter.
