Usability testing, a non-functional testing technique that is a measure of how easily the system can be used by end users. It is difficult to evaluate and measure but can be evaluated based on the below parameters:
- Level of Skill required to learn/use the software. It should maintain the balance for both novice and expert user.
- Time required to get used to in using the software.
- The measure of increase in user productivity if any.
- Assessment of a user's attitude towards using the software.
Usability testing deals with reviewing the application user interface and other human factors of the application with the people who will be using the application.
