Usability Testing


This project involved creating and conducting a usability study for the Yelp mobile app.


For this project I used remote, unmoderated usability study which entailed:

  • Creating a set of tasks for each participant to perform
  • Setting up the study in a usability study application
  • Recruiting participants for the study
  • Analyzing the data collected from the study
  • Recommended specific improvements to the Yelp mobile application based on the findings


The final deliverables for this project included a report containing an executive summary of the usability findings and recommendations as well as details regarding the study and data collected.

Lessons Learned:

This project furthered my understanding of usability studies.  Specifically, I learned how to conduct remote, unmoderated usability tests, find and recruit relevant participants, analyze the results and deliver recommendations based on my findings.
