If you are a web designer, you are sure to have been hearing all about the growth of usability testing, user interface design and user experience design.
As designers, we all want to make the best designs we possibly can – making them attractive, usable, fun and fresh. After all, the better the website works, the more effective it is for us and our clients, and the better our business will be in the future. To learn more about it, you can read more on our previous article – A/B Testing: Usability From A to B
Today we are happy to give you the key to one of these elements – usability testing. IntuitionHQ.com is happy to give away 10 free tests on their online usability testing service so you too can carve out your own little slice of usability heaven.
IntuitionHQ is a remote usability testing service that enables you to quickly and easily run tests on your designs. You can test wireframes, sketches, final designs, or even do brief surveys.
IntuitionHQ also offers A/B testing so you can run two designs against each other and compare them side by side. This can come in handy in a lot of different situations – when redesigning sites, when testing different ideas against each other, or in those painful moments when at the end of a project the client’s big boss comes along with a new sketch in his hand with his version of a new design. A little A/B testing will soon show you what’s what.
With IntuitionHQ you just upload a screenshot, sketch or wireframe, set some tasks, and send out the test. Sending out the test is very simple – it’s just a link that you can put on your facebook page, twitter feed, or any other place you see fit. Easy.
We’ve found this testing process is a really good way to get people involved without getting them over-involved.
You can take a sample test here to get an idea of what we are talking about. Testing normally just takes a few minutes, and it means people are kept in the design loop without under- or over-involving them. Beautiful.
As you can see in the above screenshot or in these sample results, it tells you how long it took someone to fulfill a task, and shows you where they clicked. With this information, you can quickly see what is or isn’t working, and tweak your designs. It’s that simple.
