Usability testers unite! Join our Community

I’m the kind of guy who loves tests. Not SATs, or BMI tests, but usability tests: connecting target customers with a government website and watching how they interact with it. Our DigitalGov User Experience Program (formerly known as First Fridays) has taught dozens of agencies how to conduct these vital tests, and we even created a monthly group to talk about how to run these tests, and make them better.

We call it the User Experience Community, and all federal employees who are interested in usability testing are welcome to join. We have a monthly conference call where we share resources, tips and stories from our experiences. Hope to see you at the next one.

P.S. We’ve written before about all of the great government discussion groups that you can join, from Web Metrics to Accessibility to Mobile Strategy. Check ‘em out!
