Practical Statistics for User Research Part I - Course

Jeff Sauro
Jeff Sauro

Presenters: Jeff Sauro, Principal Usability Engineer, Oracle; James Lewis, IBM

Learn to generate confidence intervals and compare two designs using rating scale data, binary measures and task times for large and small sample sizes.  If you don't measure it you can't manage it. User-research is about more than rules of thumb, good design and intuition: it's about making better decisions with data. Is Product A preferred more than Product B? Will more users complete tasks on the new design? Learn how to conduct and interpret appropriate statistical tests on small and large sample data then communicate your results in easy to understand terms to stakeholders.

The presentation will be a mix of enthusiastic instruction, with movie-clips, pictures, demonstrations and interactive exercises all aimed at helping make the abstract topic of statistics concrete, memorable and actionable.

Practical Statistics for User Research Part II - Course

Jeff Sauro
Jeff Sauro

Presenters: Jeff Sauro, Principal Usability Engineer, Oracle; James Lewis, IBM

Learn how to: compute sample sizes for user research studies (comparing designs, finding usability problems and surveys); determine if a benchmark was exceeded; and practice conducting and interpreting statistical tests.  If you don’t measure it you can’t manage it. User-research is about more than rules of thumb, good design and intuition: it’s about making better decisions with data. Did we meet our goal of a 75% completion rate? What sample size should we plan on for a survey, or for comparing products? Will five users really find 85% of all problems?

Learn how to conduct and interpret appropriate statistical tests on usability data, compute sample sizes and communicate your results in easy to understand terms to stakeholders.

The presentation will be a mix of enthusiastic instruction, with movie-clips, pictures, demonstrations and interactive exercises all aimed at helping make the abstract topic of statistics concrete, memorable and actionable.

Lively interviews of well-known executive leaders in User Experience, discussing their experiences with building and managing teams, their advice on best practices, and their vision for the future.

A number of well-known corporations were earlier adopters of creating and building User Experience departments, which has resulted in a small set of executive leaders in User Experience who have decades of corporate User Experience management experience. This session is an interview of some of these executive leaders to learn how the field has changed over the decades, their recommendations for best practices, lessons learned, and their vision for the future. The panel will be of interest to managers, practitioners and those who work closely with these teams, including developers, project managers, market researchers, test managers, and executives.
