Towards to the validation of a usability evaluation method for model-driven web development

Adrian Fernandez, Silvia Abrahão, Emilio Insfran
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 ACM-IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement - ESEM '10  
The challenge of developing more usable Web applications has promoted the emergence of several usability evaluation methods.  ...  This has motivated us to propose a Web Usability Evaluation Method (WUEP) which can be integrated into model-driven Web development processes.  ...  The Web application selected is an intranet employed for the management of Web projects in a company.  ...
