Part: III Appendixes > Setting Up the Test Location

Setting Up the Test Location

If you are evaluating a paper prototype, you can conduct the test practically anywhere. All you need is a large table and places for everyone to sit. For online prototypes, the testing location just needs to be a quiet place with a networked computer.

Video cameras and audio recorders are useful to have in both cases, but they are not required. You can accomplish some tests simply by taking notes on paper, though audio and video recordings make it easy to clarify specific issues later. In contrast, some companies have special rooms for testing, complete with expensive recording equipment, eye-tracking devices, and one-way mirrors for observers. These kinds of setups are useful for gathering bottom-line data but are not necessary for process data.
