A method for remote and semi-automatic usability evaluation of web-based applications through users behavior analysis

Ariel Vargas, Harold Weffers, Heloísa Vieira da Rocha
2010 Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Methods and Techniques in Behavioral Research - MB '10  
In this paper we describe a method for evaluating the usability of web-based applications.  ...  Our method is based on remote and automatic capture and semi-automatic analysis of users behavior, in order to find usability problems in the applications' interfaces.  ...  To deal with the difficulties mentioned above we propose a method for usability evaluation based on remote and automatic capture and semi-automatic analysis of users behavior in order to find usability  ...

Remote Usability Evaluation: Discussion of a General Framework and Experiences from Research with a Specific Tool [chapter]

Fabio Paternò, Carmen Santoro
2008 Maturing Usability  
In WebQuilt, the Web proxy is used for usability purposes, with spe- 03 cial features to make the logging more useful for usability analysis.  ...  Therefore, the 41 proxy makes it easier to test a site with different test participants, operating systems, 42 and Web browsers than a client-side logger does, so allowing testing  ...

Usability testing: a review of some methodological and technical aspects of the method

J.M. Christian Bastien
2010 International Journal of Medical Informatics  
These topics are: the number of participants that should take part in a user test, the test procedure, remote usability evaluation, usability testing tools, and evaluating mobile applications.  ...  The aim of this paper is to review some work conducted in the field of user testing that aims at specifying or clarifying the test procedures and at defining and developing tools to help conduct user tests  ...  Another approach consists in using a proxy. The test participants are invited to go to a specific Web site and then to follow instructions. They are then brought to the Web site under evaluation.  ...

Tracking the interaction of users with AJAX applications for usability testing

Richard Atterer, Albrecht Schmidt
2007 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '07  
It addresses the problem that the log data recorded by standard web servers is not sufficient for the tracking of users on AJAX websites, e.g. to conduct a usability test.  ...  Our research indicates that if the technology described in this paper is employed, arbitrary visitors of a website are more likely to take part in a usability test offered by that site -this facilitates  ...  We would like to thank Monika Wnuk for the UsaProxy implementation.  ...

Automatic support for web user studies with SCONE and TEA

Hartmut Obendorf, Harald Weinreich, Torsten Hass
2004 Extended abstracts of the 2004 conference on Human factors and computing systems - CHI '04  
TEA was specifically designed for user studies in the World Wide Web and is able to interact with a web browser.  ...  However, this discussion did hardly consider the importance of how to ensure an efficient execution of user tests, providing a constructive message for usability practice.  ...  Quantitative usability approaches in the web are usually based on server log analyses.  ...

Analysis and Visualization of Interactions with Mobile Web Applications [chapter]

Paolo Burzacca, Fabio Paternò
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a novel solution for intelligent analysis and visualization of user interactions with Web applications through mobile devices in order to help identify usability issues.  ...  The proposed tool is also able to support comparison of optimal use with actual user interactions. We also report on an example application of our tool to the evaluation of a real mobile Web site.  ...  For example, WebQuilt [6] only performed proxy-based logging and, thus, it was not able to gather detailed information regarding user interactions and the surrounding environment.  ...
