In an earlier article, I described the PURE methodology. PURE stands for Practical Usability Rating by Experts. Evaluators familiar with UX principles and heuristics decompose tasks into small steps and rate each step based on a pre-defined scoring system (called a rubric), as shown in Figure 1. [table id=30 /] Figure 1: Scoring rubric for PURE. The PURE method is analytic. It’s not based on

It seems like there are endless ways to ask questions of participants in surveys. Variety in question types can be both a blessing and a curse.

Participants are asked to rate their level of agreement to items that describe a
