The second major step of usability testing[1] is deciding what you will test during the testing. This is where you develop your tasks for the testing, but simply pulling tasks out of a hat will not get you the best possible tasks, and thus your results will not be as effective and helpful. To make sure you select the best tasks to test in your usability testing you need to:

  • choose an overall purpose
  • determine objectives
  • decide the type of test
  • select tasks
  • choose performance objectives

To find out what is part of each of these, check out Screen Space 17: Usability & Usability Testing 101 Part 3—Deciding what to Test.
