writing report for website interface evaluation
The purpose of this project is to find a single part (examples would include, navigation panel on Web site, pull down menu, dialog box for adjusting variables, mouse over information bubble, etc) in the user interface of an application or Web site with which you are familiar (an acceptable choice would be a web site or application that you have designed and built in the past) and design an improvement in this interface element. This report should be written from the prospective of an interface evaluation specialist in a software development group. That is, the report should be presented in a clear professional fashion in a form that could be used by designers to improve the product.
Although there is no specific form that the report should take, it should have most of the following elements.
[url removed, login to view] overall description of the interface studied.
[url removed, login to view] description (text description with screen shots, task analysis or statechart analysis, user analysis) of the interface element(part) found lacking.
