WCUS 2019 Contributor Day

The Test Team gathered at the table for Contributor Day at WCUS 2019. We talked about the various ways people can test and where to go to test things out. After this, we split into groups and wrote usability testing scripts. Once scripts were written, we took some time to install a local WordPress setup and began testing Gutenberg issues labeled with needs-testing.

The team included

Issues/PRs that were tested

Scripts created for usability testing

  1. Create a new post.
  2. Title the post: “Gutenberg Recipe”
  3. Add a text block describing the recipe:
    “This is a test recipe of a delicious pie. We love pies as they are tart and sweet at the same time.”
  4. Add a two-column block for the ingredients.
  5. In the first column, type “Crust”. Then add a bulleted list:
    • 1 ½ cup cookie crumbs
    • ¼ cup sugar
  6. In the second column, type “Curd”. Then add a bulleted list:
    • 1 (12 ounce) package of cranberries
    • 1/2 cup Sugar
    • 1 orange, zested
  7. Add a single-column block titled “Directions”
  8. In the block add a numbered list:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch two-piece tart pan with cooking spray.
    2. In a medium bowl, stir together cookie crumbs, sugar, stevia, salt, and butter. Press mixture evenly in bottom and up sides of tart pan. Bake until set, about 15 minutes.
    3. In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, stevia, and orange zest and juice. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook until cranberries burst, about 8 minutes.

  1. Go to Posts->Add New
  2. Add a title to the post
  3. Click + to add a 3 columns block
  4. On the first column add a header block and an image block
  5. On the second column, add an image
  6. On the third column add text
  7. Resize the image on the second column to make it larger (any size)
  8. Add a fourth column by clicking the Block Navigation icon on the upper left of the editing page.
  9. Add a slideshow in the fourth column.
  10. Click Preview to see how your post appears
  11. Publish the post (private if you want)

These scripts will be used in future usability testing scenarios that help inform the design and development direction in Gutenberg.

Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful contributions today! Keep testing all the things!

4.2 NUX Group Agenda, March 3, 2015

Here’s the agenda for today’s NUX working group chat in the #core-flow channel on Slack.

Topic: Welcome Panel: Narrowing Focus (continued)

  1. Last week we decided on a better list of links for three columns of the Welcome Panel: Settings, Appearance, and Content. @liljimmi was kind enough to adjust the mockups to match (see below).
  2. Welcome Screen Final from 2 24 2015 NUX meeting

  3. This week, we’ll be narrowing the focus to those individual flows. The goal would be to have at least one team member “own” each flow and identify several things:
    • The importance of highlighting that flow for new users in the Welcome Panel
    • What is currently good or bad, or could be improved
    • Bonus: Whether this is a “Day 1” link and if so, what should replace it?
  4. Next week, group members will report back with their findings and recommendations
