In a five second test, the test participant is shown a screenshot for precisely five seconds and afterward is asked to answer questions about the design.

You can run the test on websites, apps, software or any other digital product with a user interface.

With a five second test, you can identify:

  • How does your UI design communicate your message?
  • How easy is the offering or purpose of the product identified?
  • Are your navigational items and essential features standing out?
  • What is the overall impression of your design?
