Usability testing policy

This policy covers all usability testing which takes place at the University of St Andrews and applies to all staff who are involved in any usability testing process. The policy applies to in-person and distance testing, as well as for testing on mobile or desktop devices.

Any School, department or unit within the University can request usability testing, but no usability testing may take place without the agreement of the digital communications team. The intention of this policy is to highlight the rules associated with organising, conducting and reporting on usability tests.
