How to measure usability? (Part I)

There are various ways to measure usability. The most common methods include carrying out user surveys and/or polls, conducting user tests and measuring user statistics. Each method has its own important role and appropriate time in the process of measuring usability and product development as a whole.

The broad field of analysis

One can analyse everything – data, things, processes, events etc. Depending on what is being analysed, the correct methodologies will be used. Without a thorough preparation, the analysis will not usually be successful. Every analysis should be done systematically. Analysis could, therefore, be defined as dividing the whole into connected pieces.
