UX Research | Standardized Usability Questionnaires

UX Research | Standardized Usability Questionnaires | Interface Usability and Interaction | Scoop.it
Not enough content on the web encourages UX researchers to use standardized usability questionnaires after each usability test.

Julien ROLAND (@ Cairnz)'s curator insight, December 2, 2013 8:10 AM

Though I understand the purpose of Standardized Usability Tests and have used them (SUS), I see some limitations in using them IN ADDITION to the actual study's protocol: #1 addressing client -specific issues already requires tradeoffs in terms of issues to explore / questions to ask considering the average duration of individual tests and #2 it is possible to "be inspired"by standardzed tests and make sure these questions / aspects are addressed WITHIN the specific protocol. Of course #2 would not allow for comparability with other studies as the questionnaire is not delivered in a similar way. This is of course a big drawback in innovation research (as in R&D) projects where reference to previous studies / results is key, but how important is that for UX research in the context of customer projects?

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, January 10, 7:51 AM

Virtual reality has captured the imagination of developers, consumers and businesses for decades, but most VR headsets produced so far have been notable more for their limitations than their capabilities. With its latest prototype, code-named "Crystal Cove," Oculus VR has taken a massive leap forward, eliminating the stomach-churning motion blur that has plagued previous generations of VR headsets, and adding sensors and a camera to track the position of both your head and body and provide more accurate simulated movement.
