This is the first draft of the usability test scripts we will be using when testing the users. We will be testing a total of 8 users (4 novice users and 4 professional/experienced linux users). The type of users we'd like to test are as follows:
- Novice users who may be new to linux who just want to install a desktop system
- Experienced linux users who may dabble in system administration, are very technical, and like trying out different technologies
- Professional system administrators who work with advanced storage devices and configurations, typically on the job, not for fun
The 5 use cases we will be testing are:
- Non-English/US Install
- Dual Boot Install
- Customized LVM Install
- Customized RAID Install
- Preserve /home directory
[Monitor off, Video off, Computer reset]
Hi, welcome, and thank you for coming. How are you doing today?
I'm ____________ and I'm helping Fedora how well their installation program, called Anaconda, works for the people who are its audience. This is ____________ who will be observing what we're doing today. We've brought you here to see what you think of their program; what seems to work for you, what doesn't, and so on. This evaluation should take about 30-35 minutes.
