When is it best to use in-person or remote user testing? [#uxchat roundup] Why use remote UX testing [#uxchat roundup]

Last week on #uxchat, we discussed one of the most frequently talked about topics in UX: User Experience Testing. My main takeaway from this chat is: have an understanding of UX testing tools available at your disposal, know which ones are best to use based on your project goals (what are you looking to test?) and project restrictions (time, budget, geographic location, etc.). Here are the talking points:

1. When is it best to use in-person or remote user testing?

2. What are important things to consider when designing test questions? 

3. What heuristics can we use to evaluate user behavior in user tests? 

We’re joined by host Gary Coker, Director of UX at Clearwater Compliance.
