Successfully measuring the usability of any product calls for selecting the best metric, using it, and successfully utilizing the knowledge it finds. Measuring the consumer adventure offers the 1st unmarried resource of sensible details to permit usability execs and product builders to do exactly that. Authors Tullis and Albert manage dozens of metrics into six different types: functionality, issues-based, self-reported, net navigation, derived, and behavioral/physiological. They discover each one metric, contemplating most sensible tools for accumulating, studying, and featuring the knowledge. they supply step by step information for measuring the usability of any kind of product utilizing any kind of expertise.
• offers standards for choosing the main acceptable metric for each case
• Takes a product and expertise impartial strategy
• offers in-depth case reports to teach how firms have effectively used the metrics and the knowledge they printed
