    When in the process is the best time to do user testing? Low fidelity could mean paper wireframes or it could mean functional website pages (with no UI in place). And should you have submit and call-to-action buttons in your intended spots?

    • Christine Perfetti


      Usability testing is valuable at all stages of the development process. As a result, I advocate iterative testing.

      I recommend that my clients test early design ideas with paper prototypes. As the fidelity of the prototypes evolve, the best teams conduct ongoing testing throughout their process.

      As for submit and call-to-action buttons, you can determine what works best for your users by testing your design approach and button placement with them. (There is no one-size-fits-all guideline to answer this question.)
