Hi, I'm trying to come up with a "test" to be used as part of the interview process for a Usability (web) position - so I thought I'd ask the community for any ideas, nuggets, spitballs to get our brains going...
I work for a smallish web team within a large organization and we are looking to hire someone inhouse for the Usability side of things. The role is mainly Usability analysis, user testing, best practices, recommendations, etc for our exisiting large content web sites and new areas/ideas for the sites as well.
Part of the formal interview process has to have a "test" - give the interviewee a problem or task to solve in 20 minutes and present their solution at the end. The point is to see how someone thinks. We try and make these fun - relivant to the position, but not totally expected or super serious.
We're kind of at a blank for the Usability position. Any ideas? Something you've come across in the past? Something you wish you could have done or asked in an interview process?
