menu (Site structure)
In September 2012, the MyUI team conducted a new end-user validation session at Casa del Mayor, Ayuntamiento de Getafe (Madrid, Spain). The goal of this section was to test the new interface adaptation features implemented by the MyUI team and get feedback from end user. In the test, the users were asked to complete 14 tasks, including navigating through the main menu, checking the weather forecast of the cities of Seville, Berlin and Getafe, and playing a cognitive game.
The procecdure was as follows: the user is first presented the main menu of the application and is then asked to check the weather forecast of Sevilla without any further instruction. Second, the user is asked to play the Trial Making Test, a game at which the user must click on then a set of numbers sequentially: 1-2-3-4-… 25. Depending on the user's ability to complete the game, summarised by a score shown at the end of the game (which includes time to completion and missclicks), the user interface is adapted automatically.
The user now sees the main menu has changed and adapted to his/her needs. S/he is then asked to check the weather forecast for the city of Berlin, showing that the User Interface is different than before. Finally, the user is asked to modify the UI himself using the Configuration menu, which allows s/he to modify the font-size among others.
At the end of the session, the user is handed a questionaire to assess on the utility, accessibility and usability of the MyUI prototype. Interesting observations have been concluded from the end-user testing sessions, including:
