Things to consider

  • When launching an app test, point the participant to the app they need to download.
  • Some versions of prototyping software provide password protection. The password can be provided in a task and changed once the test is completed.
  • Always indicate if prototypes or mockups are being tested. This ensures participants understand and provide intended feedback.
