Interesting post.

A few months ago, I spent an hour at Freshbooks, answering questions for a $50 gift card. It was a really interesting session, and the two poeple running the session did two things right. 1. They encouraged me to think out loud as I explored and evaluated the various screens -- which is something I also heard during my interviews with Google. What's going on inside a test subject's head is really what they are interested in. 2. They knew when to move from just observing what I was doing into the more probing "Tell why .." or "How would you improve .." questions.

It's quite an art to extract the most juice from a willing test subject. And it's vital research for a company to be doing.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
