Software engineering. Software product quality requirements and evaluation (SQuaRE). Common industry format (CIF) for usability test reports

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : September 2006



BS ISO/IEC 25062:2006 provides a standard method for reporting usability test findings. The CIF is designed for reporting results of formal usability tests in which quantitative measurements were collected and is particularly appropriate for summative/comparative testing. The CIF does not indicate how to perform a usability test but provides guidance on how to report the results of a usability test.

The CIF targets two audiences- usability professionals and an organization’s stakeholders.
Stakeholders can use the usability data to help make informed decisions concerning the release of software products or the procurement of such products.

The CIF includes the:

  • Description of the product
  • Goals of the test
  • Test participants
  • Tasks the users were asked to perform
  • Experimental design of the test
  • Method or process by which the test was conducted
  • Usability measures and data collection methods
  • Numerical results.
