This section of the portfolio contains four separate usability reports I participated in creating in my graduate studies. At the beginning of each report is an executive summary of what the report was about, skills I learned, and my personal contributions to the report.
You can view the Full Usability Portfolio which contains all four reports or pick and choose by individual reports. These were group projects and for some reports I have included a gallery selecting portions I specifically created or highlighting portions integral to the report.
