What is Use Case Testing?
Testing is an essential part of the product design process. It helps stakeholders understand how a product will be used, and helps validate assumptions about the user’s needs and wants.
There are three types of tests that you as the product designer should consider conducting: 1. Functional/Usage Tests 2. Visual Interface Tests3. Usability Tests
Functional/Usage Tests: These tests simulate how a customer or end-user will use your product. They can be conducted in the lab, using a prototype or simulated environment. They look at how users interact with your product and measure their satisfaction.
Visual Interface Tests: These tests examine how users perceive the visuals of your product. They can be conducted in the lab, or using a prototype or simulated environment, to see how users respond to various interactions with your product’s visuals.
Usability Tests: Usability tests measure how easy it is for users to learn how to use your product and achieve their goals. They can be conducted in the lab, or using a prototype or simulated environment, to determine whether your design is easy to navigate and understand.
