Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking it to the streets again, part of Mapping the Modern Web Design Process.
- After the build phase,…we enter the test-and-revision phase.…What you have now is an advanced prototype,…or laid-stage beta of your site.…At this point, the site needs to be put in front of…real end users to ensure that what was planned and executed…actually works as intended in the hands…of the people it was built for.…Here, as before, it's important to bring in…real representatives of the end users,…and compensate them for their work and their time.…
This phase consists of a series of testing scenarios…that focus on different types of challenges…a website will face.…From the first encounter with the end user,…to accessibility, break testing, and beyond.…As each of the tests is conducted,…the test data is carefully collected and analyzed…to see if changes need to be made to the website.…This may result in multiple rounds of testing…for the same scenario, and it may force a redesign…or rebuilds of parts of the site.…
Which is precisely why testing…at this stage is so important.…It's better to find and fix usability and technical problems…
