This week we learned about screening users and creating tasks for them. We had to come up with a screener for advanced users on a pizza site, as well as create tasks for those who would get through. We worked in groups and shared answers with each other to build off of what we had.
The hardest part was the screener, coming up with questions that weren’t obvious but would eliminate users who weren’t qualified. Defining advanced users was an issue. A lot of our questions were similar in our group, so coming up with more was hard to do. The tasks part was easier, but still took some thought. The pace was quick, especially with the reading, but not overwhelmingly so. Overall, it was a good, if challenging, exercise.
