Important Instructions
You must work in a group of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 people. You should work with other
people from your Prac class, because one Tutor will mark the group submission. You
can work with students from another Prac class provided you agree which Tutor to
submit your work to and this Tutor knows and agrees. Only one submission should
be made per group. Make sure that every group member’s name is on the
submission, as well as the Tutor’s name and Prac time information.
Step 1: The website we will be working with is RMIT: Your team
needs to identify at least five (5) clear tasks which different users accessing the
RMIT website could reasonably expect to conduct.
Step 2: Make a Test Plan
This test plan from Part 1 will be used in Assignment 2 Part 2.
What to look for in creating the Test Plan:
• Documents and processes that you will need for the usability test
• Online templates and other test materials can be found in Week 4 Learning

2. Screeners, tasks and scenarios
Use the user profiles and draft a screener / questionnaire to identify the right
participant in your test. Focus on the unique attributes that the user must
Define tasks that the users you recruit will perform. Please note that if the
user requires an account, you cannot provide your own RMIT account details.
The task must not specify to create a log in, this is a step that the user may
decide they would need to take if necessary.
3. Test script, Observation Sheet and Consent Form
• A script to be read by the facilitator to the participant on the day of the test.
The script must welcome the participant and provide them with the
necessary information about the test
• An observation sheet to note down your observation during the test
• A consent form to be filled and signed by the participant.
4. Checking
Do a run-through of the entire test to ensure that it will take no more than 45
minutes of the user’s time. Assume that the tasks will take 3-10 times the time
an expert takes to do the task. (See Kuniavsky 2012, p285).
Task Checklist
• Do I have a good number of varied tasks? // 3 – 5
• Is the task too easy for the user? //It shouldn’t be
• Is the task realistic? // It must be
• Will the user I recruit be too familiar with the task? //It shouldn’t be
