How to conduct usability tests:​

  1. Define Objectives: The first step is to define the purpose and objectives of the test. Clarify which usability issues you want to identify and which metrics you want to measure.

  2. Participant Selection: It's important to select appropriate participants for the test. Choose a group that aligns with your target audience. Typically, these are real users or individuals who represent your target audience.

  3. Create Scenarios and Tasks: Provide users with scenarios to complete specific tasks. These tasks should cover the core features and functionality of your product or service.

  4. Prepare the Test Environment: Prepare the environment where the tests will be conducted. A comfortable environment helps users exhibit their natural behaviors.

  5. Prepare Prototypes or Products: Prepare the prototype or product you want to test. This allows you to provide users with a realistic experience.

  6. Conduct the Test: Present the scenarios and tasks to the selected participants and observe their behavior. It's important to record users' interactions and the challenges they face while completing tasks.

  7. Collect and Analyze Data: Record users' behaviors and feedback. Analyze this data to identify usability issues and improvement opportunities.

  8. Evaluate Results and Report: Evaluate the test results and compile a report. In this report, explain the identified usability issues, proposed solutions, and improvement recommendations.

Usability tests can help you understand the real-world experiences of your product or service users and improve your user-centered design and development process.
