Project Description

What is your class project?

  • In your class project, you’ll be conducting your own heuristic evaluation using Nielsen's heuristics or your own set of heuristics, on any user interface of your choice.
  • As you will learn during this course, it's difficult for one single person to be able to find all the usability problems in an interface, so in this project, you'll have the choice to work in a team (3-5 members).
  • You'll be taking the role of an evaluator and your teammates, if you chose to work in a group, will take the role of the other evaluators.
  • You'll compile the results in a final written report.

You can find some examples of HE reports below:
