Usability Report, When reporting results from a usability test, you should focus primarily on your findings and recommendations that are differentiated by levels of severity.  Include the pertinent information from the test plan and present just enough detail so that the method is identifiable.  Keep the sections short, use tables to display the metrics, and use visual examples to demonstrate problem areas, when possible.

  • Empirical evidence outlining which parts of a user interface should be fixed or improved
  • Helps teams decide whether a product is usable enough to release or needs revision and further testing, through the following features:
    • Executive summary, describing the most salient and serious usability problems first, with sections tailored to the concerns of any specific groups
    • Total number of problems, including the frequency, impact, and persistence of usability problems, evidenced by screenshots, or participant quotes
    • A list of the most severe and persistent problems.
    • Positive findings that counterbalance problems with a similar number of observed interactions demonstrating good usability
    • Detailed task and scenario descriptions that are robust and representative enough to effectively get at a range of usability error types
