usability study methodology

I'm conducting a usability study of a U.S army corps of engineers website.
The most important component is a task analysis. In this case we sit along
with the subject and have a dialogue with them as they go along with the
task (talk to them about what they are thinking, try getting their thoughts
out), and give them hints if they are stuck etc, until they get to the
result (all info is captured in the coding sheets).

Another research I recently noticed used a diametrically different approach.
They just give the task to the subjects and left them on their own.

Firstly, I think this is an excellent point.
