Part: III Appendixes > Testing Online Prototypes

Testing Online Prototypes

Online computer–based prototypes can be used for obtaining either process data or bottom-line data. If you're testing a high-fidelity prototype, you need to make it clear to the participants that they will be testing an early design and not the final Web site. They might mistakenly believe that the Web site is nearly done when it is really in the early stages of design. Setting their expectations properly will help them give you the type of high-level feedback you need at this stage, rather than comments on the visuals, such as colors and fonts. Later you can test again to evaluate these details.

Before starting a test, be sure to clear the Web browser's history and cache so that it will be as if the person had never been to the Web site before, making all the links unvisited.
