IAKM 61095-006 Reflective Journal Week 7

This is the final week of the course.  We needed to design a usability test plan for testing the Lunch Money Buddy app prototype.  This was probably my favorite assignment because I love designing tests and surveys for users to enhance the design of the product.

I would be interested to actually test my app prototype as there are a few areas of concern for me.  I used these areas of concern as the basis for my usability test design. I chose to create a think aloud, task based test as I think this will provide me with the information I need regarding these tasks and page designs.  I am most concerned about the organization hierarchy of the account maintenance functions of the app as there are many options under this one label.

Overall I feel this course was well worth the time and effort. Certainly the most challenging course I have taken within the IAKM program, but I feel it gave me hands on experience I can add to my UXD portfolio.  Since this is my last course for graduation I am thankful it was very hands on.
