Usability Datalogger gets an Update

Free usability testing tool updated ...

"Userfocus's free usability datalogger has been updated to version 3.0. It's a useful resource for usability professionals who want to use Excel to record observations during usability tests.

'Most people use Microsoft Excel to analyse the results of usability tests, but did you know you can use it to collect the data too?' asks Userfocus' David Travis. 'This spreadsheet allows you to measure task completion rates, analyse questionnaire data, and summarise participant comments. It even includes a timer so you can measure time-on-task.'

The Datalogger has recently been updated to version 3.0. The key features of the tool are:
- Free of charge: Dataloggger is freeware, distributed under a Creative Commons License.
- Cross-platform: Datalogger is a PC- or Macintosh-compatible Microsoft Excel file (requires Microsoft Excel to run).
- Customisable: You can enter participant details, task names, task order, specify pre- and post-test interview questions and include your own satisfaction questionnaire."   (Continued via Usability News)    [Usability Resources]
