Re: [IxDA] What questions to ask for a persona interview?

If shadowing isn't viable (but since you already have an interview lined up) you might want to consider a cognitive interview approach as well. While the most formal implementations of this tradition rely on having the subject actually execute the task, you can still deploy it to good effect by focusing your protocol on the tasks they need to engage within the setting where they would use the app. It's basically the sort of approach that goes into building user stories, except developing an interview protocol to draw out real data to hang your narrative on.

Interfaces/Research for 12-17 year olds: Any thoughts?

Hey guys,

Long time lurker, second time poster J

I am designing a web interface for a well-known entertainment brand for
the ages of 12-17 years in the UK.

What I am looking for help with is around user behaviour with this

1) Continuous partial attention - in my initial research, this
audience really adhere to this concept i.e. a state in which most of
one's attention is on a primary task, but where one is also monitoring
several background tasks just in case something more important or
interesting comes up.

Its a short simple questionnaire that will take only 5-10 minutes of
your time. hope i can count upon you to spare that much time.

If you havent tried the new features that we added to the emulator. I
would reccommend doing that first.

Look forward to your feedback.

If so, what's the solution? Mass list counseling? That's a lot of billable hours for someone :-)

And do you think this is truly a 100% either/or issue -- that there's no possibility a "design problem" approach might result in at least some mitigating of the situation?

Should external links really open in the samewindow?

<self-referential design point>

I hate it when links open in the same window, unless they are navigational within a site.
