Usability, Experience, and Evaluation Study/Notes/DryRun
From Wikimedia Usability Initiative
About the Test itself
- Start with a more simple task
- When the "leave-Edit warning message" appears: let her read! Don't say "it's ok, we don't need that".
- Why do we ask to create a new page? I think this can be left out, since we didn't improve anything on that process.
Usability Notes about Denise
- She did not find the edit-tab and searched left nav for it
- In the editor: had a big problem scrolling down, was confused by douple scrollbar? (browser + edit-window)
- clicked portal in left nav. left nav in general seems to take lots of her attention
- his confused her. she had to be guided back.
- doesn't find preview (did not scoll down, because of her scrolling-problem)
- Sean helped: from now on she always finds the preview.
- recognizes the reference icon immediatly. Is confused wheather she should click it. "no that just shows me..", "not sure", "this might take me to a reference" (not insert)
- recognizes inserlink icon immediatly
- Insert Link Dialog: wants to insert the whole URL of the LA Wiki Page
- Inserts bold several times (so there are many marks)
- finds save-button fast
- want to use preview and save it afterwards
- doesn't see/use Edit Summary and minor-Edit
- when she leave the editor without saving she didn't read the warning-message (Sean told her not to care about it)
- recognizes table icon immediatly
- uses the dialog without problems
- not confused/ intimidated by the code that gets inserted
- messed up the code a bit without noticing (which evokes an display error of the table)
- previews --> see the error --> wants to go back to correct her error --> click edit --> confused, got lost, (also lost her data), because she is not in her section and her edits are gone
- searches the template box (in read mode) for a section-edit link
- doesn't recognize the capsule "infobox settlement" as the San Francisco Infobox
- uses form-popup pretty well
- seaches for population
- thinks "population...footnotes" is what she s looking for. --> confused, unclear about the variables names
