Usability Testing is nothing but the application is user
friendly or not. i.e easy to use and easy to operate.

Usability Testing is nothing but testing an intended user
of the system can carry out the intended task efficiently.

usually this testing is done before going to production
by then all the bugs found are fixed and closed.

the test scenarios are used to verify the usability.
mainly the participants are atleast:
1 user representetive
1 test host
1 dveloper
1 business representetive.

usually observers are in separate rooms or on separate
machines,and no.of sessions they do is depend on the
complexity of the application.

usually in about 10 session most of the uncovered issues
can be found.

Testing for 'user-friendliness'. Clearly this is
subjective, and will depend on the targeted end-user or
customer.

UT means to test 'how simple the application to use'.

usability testing is nothing but testing the applivation
whether it is user friendly or not

color,back color,tables,borders etc.. but the above
requirements by the customer is rare

A technique for ensuring that the intended users of a
system can carry out the intended tasks efficiently,
effectively and satisfactorily. Usability tetsing is
carried out in an entire different manner as compared to a
noremal Syatem testing cycle. Main objective of Usability
tetsing is to ensure that the AUT (application under test)
does conform to the Usability Principles, and this is
achieved thourgh various evaluation methods(cannot explain
them all).
A simple example ot usability testing is "testing whether
an application can be easily traversed and operated by a
handicapped person i.e. blind, colorblind, does not have
hand (in this case through verbal commands) etc."
Usability is vast topic and can be limited depending on
ones explicit requirements and not implicit requirements as
it can trun to be costly.
