A practical guide to the CIF:usability measurements

Using the Common Industry Format ( CIF) to specify usability measures can positively influence the development process. The CIF remains inherently flexible and adaptable?empowering the practitioner to identify success criteria specific to the application. Summative usability testing with objective user performance and subjective satisfaction metrics based on existing systems provide an effective way to communicate usability requirements and usability assessments. The CIF standardizes the information captured about usability testing with users. The newly introduced Common Industry Specifications for Usabiltiy - Requirements (CISU-R) provides a structure for specifying usability requirements. These specifications provide the tools to design the measures and collect the metrics for determining the usability of systems.
