How much time is involved in a Usability Analysis?
On the average, it takes approximately three weeks to complete a
project (from scope definition up to release of report).
How long does an Expert Review take?
Depending on the size of the site, the findings
will be made available to you within one to two weeks.
What makes your method different from other usability testing methods?
We carefully measure and analyze test users' scanning and clicking behavior
and listen to what they say. In-depth analysis of recorded data enables
pinpointing usability weaknesses and objective recommendations for improvements.
Where does testing take place?
Usually, on the clients premises, but elsewhere if desired. Sotopia has experience with testing in several
European countries as well as in South America.
Where do the test users come from?
Typically, Sotopia recruits - with the client's approval - participants from among the target group of the product.
Why do you use 5 to 8 test users per evaluation?
With a group of this size per target group, all major usability problems can be detected. The number would have to be increased
significantly to achieve a relatively small increase in the number of problems recognized.
