Usability Heuristic Checklist

Hey, Passionate testers!

person holding pink sticky note

I found a wonderful resource by Michael Kritsch. It’s on usability heuristic frameworks. If you don’t understand what a heuristic is, learn about it here. These heuristics are a curated collection from 10 popular Usability research models and standards. More details on medium blog. This is a collection of heuristics, guidelines, principles, criteria, or rules. Most can be applied to your context. I have converted these into this checklist that can be used for usability evaluations.๐Ÿงก

Pro Tip: The webpage will save the status of the checklist until you reset the page cache or a timeout happens (180 days). So, you can use this as a workbook too.

Learnability ๐Ÿ’ก

Efficiency ๐Ÿšก

Satisfaction โœŒ๏ธ

Error Proofing ๐Ÿšฉ

Utility ๐Ÿ”ฆ

Memorability ๐Ÿง 

I recall all this by the mnemonic, SELEUM (Smaller, Simpler, Less Expensive than Selenium ๐Ÿ˜‚), i.e. Satisfaction, Efficiency, Learnability, Error Proofing, Utility, Memorability.
