Published

Author(s)

Jean C. Scholtz

Abstract

This work describes a methodology for designing and evaluating web sites and web applications. Our methodology is based on the premise that tools and techniques for design and evaluation must be rapid, remote, and automated in order to be useful for web development. To date we have developed three tools (WebSAT, WebCAT, and WebVIP) and three techniques (beta testing, kiosk-based testing, and scenario collection).
