What is usability testing?

Building successful products means answering your users’ needs. The usability report is a key document that allows you to gain insight into your users’ expectations and frustrations and is crucial in evaluating your product’s success – whether it’s a physical product, a mobile app or a website.

How do you write a usability testing report?

In order to test what users like/dislike about your product and find resolutions for their issues, you will need to create a user (or usability) testing report that leads to deeper understanding. Here’s how you can write an effective usability report:

1

Lead with an executive summary that concisely explains the report, discussing your key findings, the purpose of the study, how and where it took place.

2

Clearly indicate the main goals you wanted to accomplish while conducting user testing.

3

Explain your research methodology and analyze its effectiveness.

4

Detail participant profiles, testing setup, moderation and post-test questions.

5

Outline key results, bugs, issues and recommendations for next steps.
