User Research Recruiting

Hi all,

I've been asked to do some remote testing and have to find some Irish small business owners/people doing the finances in small biz. We thought our remote testing tool would let us do the screening but it turns out it's UK only, which has let us in the lurch as we need results in the next week. Any advice as to either recruiters to use or places to find these people? (Or, *cough* if anyone fits the profile, please let me know….) We need five people (two of one type and three of another) so it's not a huge number but a number.

Usability Testing Company Recommendations

Hey guys,

Does anyone have a website or company they recommend for some down and dirty user feedback? I don't need great depth to this testing nor want to pay a fortune. I would like the ability to specify a few tester demographics such as: male, ages 35-50, moderately tech savvy and considering a car purchase.

Best Way for Prototyping Designs in User Testing and for Pitches

Just curious to know what everybody uses to prototype their designs when user testing, and when presenting clients, or giving pitches to potential investors. I've seen a multitude of different resources used for user testing; anything from interactive pdfs, paper renderings, coded mock-ups and fully built software.

What sort of tools do you use for prototyping, and do those tools change with the device you're testing for?

Need advice on an unorthodox methodology

So, I'm doing a brief contract for a rather large, multinational software company located near Seattle (ahem) and I've been asked to critique a methodology I've never come across before. Clearly it's been put together on the fly a la MacGyver invention, and I'm not entirely sure it'll get the results they think it will, so I figured I'd ask more knowledgeable folk. The methodology is something of a cross between a focus group (ugh) and a feature presentation. They're calling it a Concept Verification Test, and the sessions will go something like this:
