How a Website Design Officer Measures the Overall Usability of a Website

Usability is defined the ease of use and learnability of a man-made object. In the realm of software development, usability is defined as the degree to which software can be used by specific customers to achieve measurable objects with effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction. The following text elaborates on how a website design officer measures the overall usability of a website.

The Major Quality Components:-
To make sure that the website is in fact “usable” it has to meet the following criteria:-
-       User Satisfaction.
-       Little or No Errors.
-       More Learnability.
-       Efficiency.
-       Memorability.

User Satisfaction:-
You might have heard of the fact that an average user spends 30 seconds or less on a web page before moving on to another web page or website for that matter. Well, it’s true that when it comes to being online we humans are the most impatient. If your website promotes user satisfaction then there is a great chance that your average customer will not only come back for more but they will also recommend your website to other users as well.

Little or No Errors:-
A Website Design Officer has to take into consideration how many errors a user has made and more importantly how severe those errors are. The errors that an average user makes is partly their own fault however for most part it is the fault of the website that failed to promote ease of use and understandability.  

Users should be able to accomplish basic tasks within their first visit. If your website showcases complex designs, then chances are that users will not be able to make the most out of your website.

Once users have learned the design, how quickly can they perform basic tasks on your website?

When users come back to your website, how easily can they reestablish fluency with your website?
