An evaluation of the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) website using Jacob Nielsen’s Heuristics.
Skills: Inspecting, evaluating, and determining usability issues related to heuristics in a website. Rating the severity of a usability issue. Suggestions for improvements relating to the usability flaw. Presenting a heuristic evaluation report.
This was a team project. I individually analyzed the website and noted multiple usability issues. I wrote much of the content for the Executive Summary, Introduction, and Methodology sections. As a team we discussed the severity and categorization of the usability issues.
