Usability Testing FAQs

Why is Usability Testing Important?

Usability testing extends beyond testing functionality and usability; it helps you really grasp the use cases of your product or website, identify bugs, ensure functionality and efficiency, and provides in-depth knowledge of the user experience from an actual user’s point of view.

What are the Benefits of Usability Testing?

There are multiple times when you and your team should run usability tests during the design process. In most cases, it’s something you should do more than once, and early and often in the process to inform your design decisions. Some examples of when testing should be implemented are before the design process begins, once prototypes or wireframes are completed, and prior to launch.
