Opening keynote presentation for World Usability Day in Bristol, UK 14 November 2013
Not enough content on the web encourages UX researchers to use standardized usability questionnaires after each usability test.
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?
