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!

Gutenberg Usability Testing for September 2019

I just realized I hadn’t posted the usability testing videos for September yet, so here they are! I tested a new script that was geared around the Table block ease of use and moving blocks around within the page.

Testing script

Imagine you’ve just opened a new flower shop. You’d like to create a beautiful webpage that promotes your business. You should include a Title (Name of your flower shop), some text that talks about it, and some images. Please make sure to talk through everything out loud as you complete the tasks. Let’s get started.

  1. Log in with
    username: test
    password: usertest90631
  2. Create a new post.
  3. Give your post a title.
  4. Add a Cover block to your post. Select a background color for it and then add the text, “Amazing floral decorations”. Set the Cover block to be full-width.
  5. Add a Paragraph block below and include this text, “Our floral arrangements are beyond compare. We’ve got a wide variety of flowers and trimmings to cater for any occasion. You may select from our in-stock collection or you can place a special order with us. We’re looking forward to serving your needs.”
  6. Move this Paragraph block above the Cover block.
  7. Back below the Cover block, add a Table block. The Table block should be 3 rows by 3 columns.
  8. In the first row of the Table block write, “Small Arrangement”, “Up to 6 flowers”, and “$12.99”. In the second row write, “Medium Arrangement”, “From 7-12 flowers”, and “$18.99”. Finally, in the third row write, “Large Arrangement”, “From 13-24 flowers”, and “$29.99”. Keep each quoted text item assigned to its own table cell.
  9. In the Table settings, switch “on” the “Fixed width table cells” option.
  10. Now also switch “on” the “Header section” too. Then in the new row write, “Sizes”, “Flowers”, and “Price”.
  11. Below the Table block, add a Button block. In the button, type, “Order Now”.
  12. Center the button within the block.
  13. Below this, add a Gallery block with 5 images of flowers. Make this block full-width.
  14. Now move the last image in the gallery to the first position, and then delete the last image from the gallery.
  15. Below the Gallery block, add another Paragraph block that says, “From birthday parties to anniversary dinners, floral arrangements full of fresh, beautiful flowers are the perfect complement. Whether you choose to send a bright arrangement of yellow sunflowers, vibrant roses, and colorful lilies, or a flower arrangement with delicate pastels, smiles are sure to follow!”
  16. Now add a Heading block that says, “Come visit our location”
  17. And below this add a Media+Text block with an image on the left and an address on the right.
    123 Fairytale ln.
    Neverland, CA 90001
    USA
  18. Finally “Preview” your post and make any necessary changes you think are important.
  19. Once you’re ready, Publish your post.

Video 1 – September 4

I want this to be the first one. The first one. The first one. The first one. [moving images around in the Gallery block]

Add Paragraph block. Add paragraph. Done. That was easy.

Video 2 – September 18

I just know visually in my mind’s eye what I want, but I don’t know what it’s called though.

[Referring to the sidebar] Everything I have been doing has been over here.

What’s this? Add a block…. ohhhhhh [about 11 mins into test finds the ‘+’ icon]

Video 3 – September 25

It’s all full-width and perfectly aligned. Let’s go. [referring to Gallery block]

Gutenberg Usability Testing for August 2019

August usability testing has come to an end. I ended with 5 videos this month! The script was new and encouraged the users to build a mobile phone landing page. It focused on the Column block and Cover blocks.

Testing script

Imagine you work for an industrial design company. The company has just created a new mobile phone. You’ve been assigned to create a beautiful landing page for this new phone. To do this, you will be using WordPress’ new Block Editor. Please make sure to talk through everything out loud as you complete the tasks. Let’s get started.

  1. Log in.
  2. Create a new post.
  3. Give your post a title.
  4. Add an image of a mobile phone. Once the image has been added, set the block to be full width.
  5. Below that add a Heading block with the text, “Features.”
  6. After that, add a Column block with three columns.
  7. Add a feature to each of the columns. You’ll first add an image, then a heading below that and some text below the heading. See the next task for details.
  8. In the first column add an image, under that add a heading that says, “Pixel Perfection Photos”, under which you’ll add the text, “Our camera is packed with pixels. Take beautiful high quality pictures.”
  9. In the middle column add another image, and a heading that reads, “Chrystal Clear Communication” with some text below that reads, “The sound coming from our speakers will leave you feeling like the other person is right there.”
  10. In the last columns, add another image, then add a heading, “Ubiquitous” with text below that reads, “Our phone is offered by all the major carriers.”
  11. Below this Column block, add a Cover block with a background image. On top of the image write, “Order a phone today!” and then add a Button block that says, “Order today”.
  12. Under the Cover block, add a Media + Text block with an image on the right and some text on the left that reads, “This phone is loved by everyone.”
  13. Add one more Cover block with an image, but this time set it to be a fixed background.
  14. Now, let’s add a Paragraph that reads, “Many smartphone makers save their best features for their priciest (and largest) devices. Not us. Our new phone includes great features like solid battery life and excellent performance, which means you don’t have to spend $1,000 to get the best smartphone.”
  15. Finally “Preview” your post and make any necessary changes you think are important.
  16. Once you’re ready, Publish your post.

Video 1 – Aug 1st

Add a heading block? How can I do that? I don’t even know what that means.

[After using the search feature in the Block Library] Oh, here it is, actually. I found it.

Video 2 – Aug 8th

Ooops, I did something wrong. How do I remove this?

This looks really really good. I didn’t expect it to look that good. It was that easy.

Video 3 – Aug 14th

That was quite intuitive. Click on the Heading option obviously from this menu.

This appears to be 3 columns, let’s click on that.

[while clicking through the Block Library accordions] I’m not seeing button so far…

Video 4 – Aug 21st

Things seem to be easy to find.

Video 5 – Aug 28th

To set to full-width, I’m just gonna drag it out.

It’s getting a lot faster now that I’ve done this once. It’s way easier!

Gutenberg Usability Testing for July 2019

July usability testing has completed for Gutenberg. I kept the same testing script as last month to be able to make a comparison over the course of these last two months. The users were mostly new to WordPress so expect a novice level of interaction.

Testing script

Imagine you’re writing a blog post about your favorite bakery. Your blog should have a title, some images of desserts, and a couple content sections. Please make sure to talk through everything out loud as you complete the tasks. Let’s get started.

  1. Log in.
  2. Create a new post.
  3. Give your post a title.
  4. Add a Cover block to your post with a message overlaying the image that reads, “The sweetest place on earth”.
  5. Make the Cover block full-width.
  6. Add a paragraph below that reads, “This bakery is committed to using the finest ingredients from all over the world ensuring that quality remains the cornerstone of their business. In fact, quality is the number one ingredient in everything they do.”
  7. Now add a heading for the cupcakes section.
  8. In this section, add an image of cupcakes with some text along the right side of it.
  9. Add a sentence or two below to finish off the cupcake section.
  10. Add a new heading about cookies.
  11. In this section, add a Media+Text block with an image of cookies on the right, and some text on the left side. Make this area full width.
  12. Below that, add a gallery of 5 more images.
  13. Now add a quote you heard someone say about this bakery. Maybe something like, “This bakery is almost as good as Grandma’s house!”
  14. At the bottom, add a horizontal divider.
  15. Finally, include a link to the bakery site. Type the bakery name, and then link it to a website (any website is fine).
  16. Publish your post.

Video 1 (July 4)

[User adds a Cover block] Okay, now I’m just going to begin typing in it. [completely skips the Cover block’s instructions in the placeholder]

The hardest part was having to figure out what part to click on to add the text.

I’m not really sure how I can add [a block at the bottom of the page]

Video 2 (July 10)

Oh, the text is here. I couldn’t even tell. I wish there was an indication. [referring to where to add text in the page]

So it’s kinda like a puzzle. I can move these elements around.

Video 3 (July 17)

I’m afraid you’re using terminology that doesn’t mean that much to me.

I’m going to give up on this. [referring to the Media Library and adding items to gallery]

This isn’t obvious or intuitive at all.

Gutenberg Usability Testing for June 2019

Continuing the usability tests on Gutenberg, here’s three from the month of June. The insights found in these videos help inform decisions going forward with Gutenberg. Keep in mind that due to the platform being used for these videos, many of the users might be completely new to WordPress.

This month focused on a test similar to the WCEU usability tests that were run. You can read up on those from WCEU here: part one and part two. It focused on building a post using common blocks including media + text, headings, etc.

Testing script

Imagine you’re writing a blog post about your favorite bakery. Your blog should have a title, some images of desserts, and a couple content sections. Please make sure to talk through everything out loud as you complete the tasks. Let’s get started.

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to make it go on the right.

I want to add a paragraph so I’ll just write some lines.

Video 2 (June 13, 2019)

I’m not sure how to do that but I’m going to give it a try.

I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get the writing exactly right next to it.

Video 3 (June 25, 2019)

This looks good!

How do I add an image?

Gutenberg Usability Testing for May 2019

As noted in last month’s post, I’m conducting a usability test every week on userbrain.net for Gutenberg. These tests are a way to keep track of Gutenberg’s progress and improvements. It also helps reveal any additional UX issues that may not have been evident.

This month focused on image and video blocks. It also involved editing content in relation to those blocks like moving them up and down in the post, and adding captions.

Testing Script

Imagine you are on assignment to write an article for a new travel blog. Luckily, they are sending you to your favorite vacation spot! Your instructions are to choose a topic you think will get people as excited as you are about this place. It’s up to you to pick a focus (food, activities, lodging, etc.).

  1. Log in.
  2. Create a new post.
  3. Give your post a title and add one sentence.
  4. Add two images side-by-side.
  5. Add a YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PcrLWkxZSk).
  6. Add a caption to the video you added.
  7. Swap one of your previously added images with another image.
  8. Add an image on the left and some text on the right and a paragraph below it.
  9. Move the video to the bottom of the content.
  10. Once you’re done, publish the post.

Gutenberg Usability Testing for April 2019

To keep a steady pulse on the user experience in Gutenberg, the Research Team is conducting weekly usability tests on userbrain.net. These tests are meant to be non-moderated tasks for new and experienced WordPress users. One test per week is given and reviewed to help highlight how people might go about completing tasks within Gutenberg.

The tasks will remain the same for each user over the course of two months. This will help compare a few usability tests within a similar range of time throughout the year.

I’ll gather the results at the end of each month to share.

Each user was new to WordPress, but wasn’t screened for demographic data.

Testing script

Imagine your friend has requested that you build a webpage on their site using excerpts from the novel, Moby Dick. They sent you a mockup of what they’d like you to build. And to help you further, they’ve already uploaded all the media and content you’ll need for this. They’ve also created a draft page for you to design called, “Moby Dick Excerpt.”

  1. In a new tab in your browser, review the mockup at: https://cldup.com/SAtxaMGvA0.png
  2. Now go back to: https://wpuxtesting.com/wp-admin
  3. Log in with
    username: XXXX
    password: XXXX
  4. Find and open the “Moby Dick Excerpt” draft page.
  5. Begin editing the content so that it looks like the mockup. Try to get as close as you can to the mockup’s design before completing. All the assets are already added to the site in the Media Library.
  6. Once you’re done, publish the page.

Please make sure to talk through everything out loud as you complete the tasks.

  1. While watching the above videos, did you have any findings or key takeaways?
  2. Do you have any thoughts on how this script might be improved?
  3. Would you like to create a usability test script? If so, share in the comments below.

Caveat: Because these are non-moderated usability tests, sometimes the people going through the tasks treat them as such – simple tasks they need to finish. This can lead to a lack of creativity and exploration on the part of the user and may not reflect real-life situations when building a site.

Comparing the Classic Editor and Gutenberg

Some videos of people using the Classic Editor were shown in the State of the Word 2018. These videos illustrate some of the pain points found in past usability testing, studies, surveys, and feedback. We added a few tests of Gutenberg with same tasks and are sharing them here.

Demographics

  • Classic Editor: 10 participants (6 female, 4 male), 3 countries, age range: 20-39, web expertise: average or advanced, WP experience: novice or average, NPS: 6.4.
  • Gutenberg: 3 participants (2 female, 1 male), 2 countries, age range: 19-36, web expertise: average or advanced, WP experience: novice or average, NPS: 8.3.

Classic Editor Highlight Reels

Gutenberg Highlight Reels

Although the questions were initially created for the Classic Editor, the same tasks in Gutenberg were compared.

Net Promoter Score (NPS)

We asked, “based on your experience today, how likely are you to recommend this editor to a friend or colleague? (0=Not at all likely, and 10=Very Likely)?” after each test. Users rated the Classic Editor experience at an average of 6.4 and the Gutenberg experience 8.3.

WCUS Gutenberg Testing: Volunteer Feedback

During WCUS, we had a ton of volunteers staff the Gutenberg testing booth (affectionately called the “Gutenbooth.”) A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and ran tests throughout the weekend!

At the end of the weekend, we asked volunteers for some feedback about common trends they saw, along with recommendations for improving the testing process. Here’s the feedback we received:

Did you see any issues come up repeatedly while you were watching people test?

  • Aligning caption citation, converting paragraphs to list, changing block type when clicking into “Write your story”.
  • Typing the quote into the paragraph block, then trying to format it to match. The ability to change the block type was surprising info, as was the quote block having different styles available.
  • People couldn’t find the second quote style.
  • Right aligning quote blocks instead of changing the quote style.
  • People didn’t realize they should use the quote block type.
  • People didn’t know there were two quote styles.
  • May be more issues of the test itself, but most often people didn’t think to make the text style a quote block. They would be looking for font controls. If they did discover blocks sometimes they wouldn’t see the quote block.
  • No one really noticed the second quote style. They were more likely to find the Block settings, so maybe we move the quote style options to the quote > Block > Settings for easier discoverability.
  • People often missed the existence of the Quote block and used two Paragraph blocks instead, and when they did find the Quote block, they often didn’t know they could select different quote styles.
  • It feels like there are too many places for block settings. The icon for the second quote style was unclear. Some people didn’t know it was a quote and made paragraphs and styled those. Developers added inline CSS to make it match the design.
  • Insert block and then edit was not default mindset (at this point). Discovery of the ability to transform wasn’t strong.
  • There were plenty of issues with people not finding block creation or navigation intuitive. block controls cover up the previous block bottom line of text. If it’s a short line of text you might not see it at all. People sometimes got confused thinking their text was gone.
  • Undo/Redo is not intuitively discovered.
  • It wasn’t obvious what was behind the three vertical dots.
  • /slash commands could be interesting to search and use. We may consider a walk-thru wizard for new users to get them acquainted with now the new blocks can work.
  • Some tech glitches.
  • Mostly related to the test setup (e.g. not knowing to switch tabs to Gutenberg / switch tabs back to finish survey).

tl;dr: The two separate quote styles were the biggest pain point, followed by trouble learning the editor and block interface, particularly switching blocks, the ••• menu, and block controls.

Is there anything you think we should change about the test?

  • I suspect part of the issue with caption alignment was due to the task of the test to be imitation, not creation, so I think it leads people to think in terms of alignment, not necessarily style.
  • Make the screenshot not achievable using Gutenberg / Provide people with content and let them do much more free-form style.
  • Maybe written instructions instead of asking people to “mimic” output, because it this is not the way people write content in general, they do not “copy” something.
  • I’d have the sample printed out and set next to the laptop to keep the user from having to swap between windows.
  • Automate screen recording start/stop, one-button reset for survey etc.
  • Yes. I think expecting people to know they should be recreating a block quote without telling them that is what it is, skews the test results a bit. We need to try to replicate a more natural publishing process somehow.
  • No, this was a good example to make people search for options and solutions.

tl;dr: Imitating an existing design make people focus too much on the details and not as much on the editing experience, we need to print out whatever instructions we provide, and better automation.

If you attended WCUS and ran through the Gutenberg usability test, we’d also love your feedback with how you think the test can be improved!

WordCamp Milano testing the Gutenberg tests

At WordCamp Milano contribution day the tests recently written about here. Thank you to everyone that helped. @emanuelblagonic gets a shout out for helping co-lead on the day.

So, what happened? Well we started by running the tests. They were self run by people who hadn’t done the tests before. We had about 3-4 people doing this. From there others split into testing on another person and also into even testing on mobile.

It’s worth noting this is a brief overview, as the tests are run through bugs will be reported and enhancements made. However, it’s good to report early as this was a test of the tests.

The stats:

  • Task C: 2 tests
  • Task B: 4 tests
  • Task A: 3 tests

Videos collected: we have 9 videos collected from the testing. These are still being processed. One test was on mobile, the rest desktop.

The test changes

Based on the feedback we got a few things were changed:

  • Wording was made more explicit.
  • The image to make up itself was changed and copy provided as this was big piece of feedback as an issue.
  • Task B was easier than task A so we modified this.
  • Video uploading was an issue and we now have a Google drive to use.
  • The age range was better at 50-60 and then 60+

Gutenberg changes from test

One major thing was adjusted, the block toolbar was put back by the block, over being fixed. This was something previous tests had suggested worked, but in testing it really didn’t. We still have the switch and more A/B testing needs to happen with a wider audience.

Interesting feedback

One ‘food for thought’ feedback was this that when saying ‘make this image’ one user looked for a block that looked like that. It is important to note and see if this is common. We could direct more, but we maybe can hold this to review.

Thanks to everyone that helped run the tests, your work counts and by testing we make Gutenberg a better product.

Don’t forget there is going to be testing happening at WordCamp US. If you are attending, please sign up to help with the tests or come along and discover Gutenberg for yourself. We’ll be sure to post here the findings.
