On the Fast Track: New Usability Testing Methods for Web Sites
Jean C. Scholtz, L L. Downey
The dynamic nature of the Web poses problems for usability evaluations. Development times are rapid, changes to Web sites occur frequently, often without reevaluating the usability of the entire site, and new advances in Web developments change user expectations. In order to incorporate usability evaluations into such an environment, we must produce methods that are compatible with the development constraints. We believe that rapid, remote and automated evaluation techniques are key to ensuring usable web sites. In this paper, we describe three studies we carried out to identify the feasibility of using modified usability testing methods of nontraditional methods that meet our criteria of rapid, remote and automated.
