Guidelines of Using UI Evaluation Techniques

Derived from Robin Jeffris, etc, 1991, "User interface evaluation in the real world: a comparison of four techniques", Proceedings of CHI, 1991, pp119-124.

(1) Always ask developers to do evaluation by using guidelines and cognitive walkthrough.
(2) When user interface specialists are available, ask them to do the heuristic evaluation.
(3) When having enough budget and time, do usability testing.
