Quick & easy methods for usability testing micro-interactions?

Hey everybody,

I'm looking for suggestions for ways I can usability test some
micro-interactions on the site I'm working on. We've worked out a
bunch of the big questions - the flow and IA seem to be working, the
visual design is adding to the content, and users are enjoying
themselves on the site - but a handful of issues regularly pop up
that I would like to be able to test out with some users.

What is a subset of the other?

In my organization, there is a simmering debate that Interaction
Design is not a subset of User Experience, where as people think that
it's just the other way around.

Survey Design | Usability Issues

Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of designing a survey for work. The survey consists of
45 questions to be conducted online using a the Checkbox tool (
http://www.checkbox.com/ which seems to be down at the moment).

Because it is a lengthy survey, I am worried about a couple of things:
1. Does the number of question per page matter? If so what is the average
number of questions a participant should answer per page before they lose
patience?
2. Alternatively, what is the maximum number of pages a survey should have?
3.

Specs for usability lab

Hi, all,

I've been tasked with getting together specs for a usability lab that one of my clients is building. I'm thinking a standard three-stage lab with a relatively large participant room for group testing, if that ever comes up. But I don't have specifics yet. Has anyone out there done this before? Any advice?

Thanks,
Hilary

Indexing / storing usability study results

I am working in an organization that is focused on doing quick,
lightweight usability research, especially once the work has a good
foundation: bringing a design into a coffee shop, for example,
running 5 quick (15 minute) studies, making changes, showing 3 more
people the next day, etc.

In this model, I've seen things get revised and re-tested 10 or more
times.

At the same time, there is a formal research organization that would
like to have all the results organized and indexed so they can find
them later.
