When making design decisions, the most efficient way to work is building in cycles of user testing. Don’t spend engineering resources to test out new designs, start with user testing and streamline your application’s UX before writing a single line of code. In this course, UX User Testing, you will learn foundational knowledge of conducting user testing sessions. First, you will learn how to develop a plan for your user test. Next, you will discover the difference between moderated and unmoderated user testing. Finally, you will explore how to run a focus group. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of UX User Testing needed to analyze the data to make informed business and design decisions.
Course Overview Hello. My name is Jeff Hurd, and welcome to my course, UX User Testing. Sharing our ideas, mockups, and prototypes to users is a powerful step to creating great products, but it can be extremely difficult to find the right kinds of users, document the findings, and keep bias completely out of the process. In this course, we're going to go over the best practices of usability testing in order to obtain high-quality feedback that informs our design and product decisions. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include developing a usability test plan, moderating a user testing session, many specific types of usability testing such as tree testing, A/B testing, and focus groups, and analyzing user testing data, creating themes without bias, as well as a usability testing report. By the end of this course, you'll know how to plan and execute effective usability testing. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn usability testing techniques with the UX User Testing course, at Pluralsight.
