Support of website usability testing

The usability of websites can be tested by using several tools. In our project we mainly focus on information architecture tests, namely the method of card sorting and tree testing. Both methods can be used to understand how users think of website structure and content. Without user understanding, it is impossible to design good information architecture.

For remote and unmoderated testing, we often loose some valuable data. Existing solutions usually only show the participant’s overall results, but do not show enough data of participant behavior while performing test tasks. Our goal is to properly represent these data.

We focus on the usability of the websites and the methods for testing usability. We analyze existing tools for testing the information architecture. Consequently, our goal is to create a tool that tracks the participant’s complete behavior during card sorting and tree testing and represent the results of these two tests.
