Evaluation 1 (Due: 2/8, 2pm)

Objectives

  • Think about the five usability attributes in the context of a familiar website.

Instructions

Evaluate the website you visited the most often as indicated in Homework 0 based on the five usability attributes.

  • Learnability
  • Efficiency
  • Memory
  • Few errors
  • Satisfaction

To submit, add an H1 section in your personal wiki page with the title Evaluation 1 (see Example). Make sure the link to your personal wiki page on the People page is functional because it is how the teaching staff will try to find your homework.

For each usability attribute, add an H2 section and write a short evaluation (100 words) on the website with respect to that attribute. Thus, the total is about 500 words.

Your evaluation can focus on either good and bad points, for example,

  • What features does the website have to enhance this usability attribute?
  • What usability problems you may have encountered that is related to this attribute?

Whenever appropriate, include a screenshot to illustrate the usability good.
