UW students needed for usability research study

Make your opinions heard
Usability studies are being planned to aid in the restructuring of two UW websites.  The studies will provide design direction and priorities for projects that affect how we will access information at the UW for years to come.
We are seeking students to participate in usability studies planned for May 23 to June 7.  The studies will be held in the usability lab in Mary Gates Hall, located at the center of the Seattle campus.  Each participant will be scheduled for their own individual session.  Sessions will last about 45 minutes.  During that time, participants will be asked to look at review web designs, try out features, and offer us comments and feedback.
Please help us to make these websites easier and more enjoyable to use!
You do not need to be a computer guru to participate in our study.  Participants at any level of skill are welcome.
If you would be willing to help us, please including the following information, and either reply to this post, or email etidwell@cac.washington.edu.

  • Your first name:
  • Your UWNetID or other email address:
  • Your phone number (if we can call you):
  • Your major (if declared):
  • Your # of years at UW:
  • Do you have a visual impairment or physical disability that affects how you see or read, or how you use a computer?  If so, please describe briefly:

Participants will receive a gift as a token of thanks.
