Case Study: Survey for IT Website

  • Open Card Sort (for labels)
    • Labels and categories are extensive but some are repeated
    • Evaluating the card sort one by one and comparing could be onerous
    • Some people responded that the site is difficult – they compared other universities but didn’t find a good way to organize it
  • Responses to questions about icons where almost more useful that the straight survey
  • Evaluated difficulty of use on prototype but probably should have also timed how long it took to do actions
  • Pros and Cons reactions
  • Associate one word to an image
