Conducting The Test

Tip: try this out with a friend a day before so you can iron out any kinks in the flow..and really, you'll feel more confident if you've done this before 😉

✅ Last steps on testing day:

call / send reminder emails to your candidates. (you can go to your calendar, click an event → email guests).
test the prototype again and make sure you cover all the flows.
check the prototype link.
make sure you have your note taking template ready.
❤️ while you can use another display & take notes on your computer; this doc assumes you have only one display. Besides, users could be intimidated / distracted by the sounds of your typing while they are attempting to complete a task. Simply scribble down your notes on the paper. It's not hard to put them in the sheet later.
