The usability checklist approach revisited

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In discussing the usability checklist approach, as presented by Ravden and Johnson (1989), it is necessary to trace the origins and the intention of the method, before addressing issues such as its relation to other, similar methods or attempting to place it in the context of the user interface design and evaluation cycle. Accordingly, this chapter first deals with its history, describes the checklist approach, and then reflects on current usage of the approach, prior to discussing some of the strengths and weaknesses of the technique.
