Test: 5-second test
With a five second test you can identify:
- How your UI design communicates your message
- How easy the offering or purpose of the product is identified
- The overall impression of your design
Step-by-step guide to setting up a 5-second test with Preely
From the start screen click “Create test”. Choose device.
1. Welcome your participants
We have written a short welcome to your participants. If you want to change it, just write your own personal welcome.
2. Add tasks and questions
This is where you truly set up your test. Click ‘Insert element’ and create different tasks and ask your participants questions.
When you want your participants to perform a task in your test, you add a task to your test. You write an introduction and then you formulate the task. Try to break down your tasks in small chunks.
Introduction: One of your friends has sent you a link to a website.
Task: Open the link and take a look around, note you can not interact with the website.
2.2 Add prototype
Click Add prototype and upload your design(s), screenshot, Adobe XD-, Figma- or Sketch artboards, or via InVision Cloud link.
Remember to set an end screen on your tasks. This can either be a:
‘Endpoint’: This means that your participants should click on this certain spot in your prototype to end the task
‘Timer’: This means that you set a timer on the last screen in your test and after a set amount of time, the task is ended
Step 4. Ask questions
Click ‘Insert element’ and choose ‘Add question’. Then fill in the questions and choose answer types (rating, multiple choice or free response).
Examples of questions:
- What do you think this page was about?
- What product do you think this company sells?
- What’s your first impression of the site?
- What got your attention?
Free text response
Ask participants to write a free text response to your question and get raw, unfiltered feedback.
Get specific and use multiple choice to learn if participants noticed or didn’t notice exactly what you wanted them to.
Ask participants to rate your design, using different scales (Likert, Semantic Difference, Smiley scales or NPS).
