Two factors were identified in a study several years ago (sorry, don't remember the reference):

1) The perceived complexity of an operation influences the user's expectations.

Is that an opinion or based on research? Is so, do you have a pointer to that research?

Retype password field error rates

If I have a 'password' field and a 'retype password' field, how many users will type in mismatching passwords?

Does anyone know a typical error rate?

I need to know this so I can reliably determine how many users got other errors in the password fields due to password rules (not long enough, old password, etc.)

Thanks!

User Survey to get feedback

I was thinking about using our customer survey to get information on UX issues and possibly identify where applications are stronger or weaker than competitors. I have taken a number of surveys but never created any so if anyone has any advice I greatly appreciate it.

Ecom Beta Site

Has anyone ever participated in a ecom site redesign where you created a beta environment that runs parallel to AND is accessible by users from the existing site?

The two environments would have the same functionalities and allow people to complete all the same tasks but Beta would have the new UI.  (Not an A/B situation. A completely functioning different version of the site.)

Users could try the beta environment but would always have the option to ‘eject’ from Beta and return to the ‘old’ UI.
