Pre Assessment - Nielsen's Usability Heuristics

 

Thank you for your participation.

The purpose of this evaluation is to help me assess how familiar you are with the concepts of heuristics prior to taking the course.

Pre - Course Assessment Questions

"Usability" is a quality attribute of a system concerned with how easy it is to use that system.

Match each usability component to the appropriate question it asks.

Сombine elements from the left column with the elements on the right
Learnability
 
How easy is it for users to accomplish basic tasks the first time they encounter the design?
Efficiency
 
How pleasant is it to use the design?
Memorability
 
When users return to the design after a period of not using it, how easily can they reestablish proficiency?
Errors
 
Once users have learned the design, how quickly can they perform tasks?
Satisfaction
 
How many errors do users make, how severe are these errors, and how easily can they recover from the errors?
