Test Your Usability Knowledge

Usability has become an essential requirement of interactive software. In response, human-computer interaction (HCI) has grown into a serious field of research, development, and application. To meet the specific needs of practitioners for methods and tools to develop user interaction designs with provably high levels of usability, Usability Engineering (UE) has emerged as a sub-discipline within HCI. This quiz is sponsored by UXLabs India (www. Ux-labs. Com) to test your knowledge about usability. Happy Quizzing!
