So, you've conducted your usability study.
You've given your testers tasks and probed
their minds with incisive questions.
Congrats! It's time to assess
your hard-fought results.
A good first step is to watch whatever
screen recordings you've made of users
performing their assigned
tasks. Make a bowl of popcorn,
put your feet up and watch the playback.
Listen to the test subjects' audio
commentaries. Pause to make notes,
but maybe not too often
the first time through.
Doing this should give you a good idea
of the overall tenor and quality of your
test users' experiences.
It will also familiarize you
with their individual voices,
which may be helpful later
when analyzing their answers.
Pause the playback to note places where
your testers appear to have stalled or
but also take note of anything they
particularly enjoyed or appreciated.
If everybody loves something, you
want to take care to preserve it.
There's no irritation like seeing some
beloved feature eliminated from your
favorite piece of software.

avenues for further investigation.
Consider a spreadsheet
to tabulate your results.
This will allow you to quickly survey
responses and help you spot trends in the
It's great to be able to sort answers
according to whatever criteria you choose.
Finally, you'll want to share your
findings with your team members and,
ultimately, all of the stakeholders.
That's another good reason to
compile the results in a spreadsheet.
Other ways you can share
your findings: Well,
you could compile a list of the best
quotes from your task recordings.
Create a highlight reel
from the test recordings,
bolstering your recommendations.
Create graphs or charts to
illustrate your findings graphically.
Even if there aren't that many testers,
it can still be helpful in
spotting trends. And, as always,
check with your original objectives
when presenting to stakeholders.
They want to know that you're addressing
the issues that brought them to you in
the first place.
