5 Effective Ways for Usability Testing to Play Nice with Agile Design

5 Effective Ways for Usability Testing to Play Nice with Agile

Usability testing has been a fundamental tool in the UX arsenal for decades now. The value of actually meeting your customers and letting them experience your product makes a significant impact to the shape of that product. In it’s most formal version, testing can be a multi-day, multi-thousand $/€ process that delivers final analysis days if not weeks later. With many organizations moving to an Agile philosophy and methodology, UX practitioners are finding it difficult to integrate formal usability testing into this faster-paced, iterative approach to software development.

See? Lions and zebras can get along. So, too, can Agile and Usability Testing.

One-Click-Test, Screenshots, language options and more Announcements

One-Click-Test, Screenshots, language options and more

We’ve pushed out just a major update of our online testsuite. Check your account to test our new interface and features. A short overview of the most important new features in our current release:

Test in your own language

We now support Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Estonian, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish tests. We’ve translated our test interface in multiple languages. You can add questions or tasks in your own language.

Do you want to use our frontend in your own language? Help us to translate about 130 words and receive a free full account. Contact us for more details.

One-Click-Tests

Do you make a great first impression? With a One-Click-Test you can ask your users anything you like, but give them only one click to answer. For example: “Where would you search for information about our plans?”. A users’ first click is saved instantly after clicking anywhere on the screen.

One-Click-Tests for first impressions

Generate screenshots on-the-fly

You no longer need to manually create a screenshot of your webpage to create a test. When you add a new page to your test you can now specify the URL of the page and we’ll generate a screenshot on-the-fly. This makes creating a test even more easier. Our screenshot generator unfortunately does not support Flash and could sometimes choke on a webpage, but should work fine to generate fullpage screenshots in a blink in all other cases.

Nifty new visualizations

We’ve updated the visualizations of your test results. The new visualizations should help you to process your feedback more easily. You can now plot the results of multiple tasks on one page and change the colors of your charts.

Plot multiple questions in one chart

Create your own heatmaps

Export your data as plain text, CSV, and XML

Save your data as plain text, CSV or XML and import it in Excel, Numbers, SPSS, or any other software you like. Feel free to send us a request for other filetypes / formats.
