Task-oriented usability tests


User 1

1 - How would you go about finding more about the sleigh?

- Thinks that the ... or expand buttons lead to more information
  - Button should say "more information" rather than "expand" to guide the user

2 - want to mark it somehow so you can come back to it in the future. How would you do this?

- Add to collection if he is comfortable with this option and understand how it works
- However, "my collection" has to be easily discoverable
- needs to be apparent how you get back to "my collection"

3 - you decide to leave a note about the sleigh. How would you do this?

- Click on the comment link and would look for the form to add the comment
- Would also click on the tag link
