, UX Collective - Medium

Imagine for a moment a port, with endless rows of shipping crates, ships docking, and cranes moving goods about.

What kind of change are you looking for through your design system? Here’s one way to frame it. It should serve you if you want to make your pitch to someone in a management position, someone with a stake in the productivity of digital product teams in particular.Setting the sceneWhen you can no longer fit your digital product team(s) into one room or weekly sharing session, collaboration dynamics change:

How to Code Errors in Unmoderated Studies

, MeasuringU

Errors can provide a lot of diagnostic information about the root causes of UI problems and the impact such problems have on the user experience. The frequency of errors—even trivial ones—also provides a quantitative description of the performance of a task.

The process of observing and coding errors is more time-consuming and dependent on researcher judgment than recording task completions or task times. Consequently, errors aren’t collected as frequently in usability studies as other metrics.
