Learning, evaluating and testing with usability heuristics

On the last project I worked on, I had to test the multiple websites of a financial institution. The context was that they redesigned their websites to attract more clients. Besides functionality and compatibility testing, the stakeholders – the marketing department – asked me to provide information about their websites usability.

Dolly: Bad Habits During Testing Activities

This is a really hard question and gives me a lot to think of. Not because I don’t have bad habits, but because it’s really hard to recognize them. Even though I know that there is a lot to learn about testing and a lot of improvement to do on my skills, it’s difficult to figure out what I need to do better while I’m doing my job.

But this is the first step in improving my testing skills. If I manage to recognize what my bad habits are while testing, I will know what to improve next.
