Answer / lakshmana rekha basu

Usability Testing is nothing but testing an intended user
of the system can carry out the intnded 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 seperate rooms or on seperate
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.
