Why is it so difficult to navigate the Staff Portal? Become a test person!

We are looking for testers who can test the Staff Portal during one hour, in Solna on April 21 or in Flemingsberg on April 22. Register in the form, see link at the bottom of the page.

Want to join and improve KI's Staff Portal? We are conducting a study to improve navigation and we need employees who can act as test person - a link to the registration form can be found at the bottom of this page.

How does the test work?

The test will take a maximum of 75 minutes. First you will answer some questions about your work at KI. Then you will perform a number of tasks based on finding specific information. The tests are led by a test leader, who asks questions and you are asked to think aloud and reason about what you do and how you solve your task.

NOTE: the questions has no "right" solution, we want to study how you navigate and search for information. You do NOT have to be prepared in any way.

Will the tests be recorded?

Yes, we record your voice to hear how you think and reason, and we record what happens on the screen. We do not record your face.

The recorded material will only be used for analysis and the participation is anonymous.

Am I the right person?

We are primarily looking for people who work with research and education, but also those who work with administration and other support activities. You must be employed or affiliated with KI. We are also looking for participants who do not have Swedish as their mother tongue or do not understand Swedish at all.

What should I bring?

Please bring your own service computer, otherwise you can borrow one of us on site.

Where do the tests take place?

The tests will be conducted on April 21 for those who work in Solna (the test takes place in Aula Medica) and April 22 for you who work in Flemingsberg (the test takes place in Ana 8).

I work at home because of the Corona virus?

If the corona virus forces many of KI's employees to work from home for a long period, the tests could be conducted from home, in this case your laptop must have a built-in webcam / microphone.

Who is behind the tests?

The tests are conducted by KI's communication department in collaboration with the analysis company Usability Partners. The purpose is to identify any deficiencies in the structure and design of the Staff portal in order to improve it.
