Validating an idea with a user group is an important part of software development
During design week, you’ll conduct User Research after you’ve completed the Discovery Workshop
Feedback from your users will be analysed and inform the direction of the Product
After the Definition Workshop, you’ll create a clickable prototype using Figma
This prototype will be tested with users in Usability Testing sessions
User Research will be completed in a 90-min window on Monday
Usability Testing will be completed in a 90-min window on Wednesday
You’ll conduct 20-30 minute research / testing sessions in pairs
Each person in the team should arrange for 1-2 users to be available during each of the 90-min windows.
The team will complete research with 6 people and complete testing with 6 people
Schedule your users for time slots, in 30 minute intervals
|Time||Pair 1||Pair 2|
|14:15||User 1||User 2|
|14:45||User 3||User 4|
|15:15||User 5||User 6|
You can ask the same people to be available for both sessions, or have different users for the separate windows
Find users who are not familiar with the Product idea, but they might be people who would fit into the target user group
Try to avoid conducting research and testing with developers, who will be aware of what happens behind the scenes
I’m looking for volunteers for a 20-30 minute User Research session for my final project at Founders and Coders.
We’ll have a list of questions ahead of time to facilitate discussion. No technical experience is required, this session is intended to gather feedback on our app idea and challenge our assumptions!
Would you be available anytime between 2:15pm and 3:45pm on Monday?

You do not have to have technical experience, we’re looking to understand how people use our Product, from your point of view.
We will need to watch you interacting with a working mockup of our app, you’ll share your screen while you talk out loud, so please join on your laptop!
