August 18 th 2009 Assignment #8 HCI II 310 Finnegan’s Wake Professor Finnegan Justin, Mitul, Amanda, Jason Each team member evaluated our prototype using Nielsen’s Ten Heuristics.

In addition, Visibility of System Status, User Control and Freedom, and Help and Documentation scored high, meaning they could be critical problems related to the usage of our touch-sensitive prototype.

This means they are not severe problems as of right now, but they could have the potential to become issues later on or even become the cosmetic type of problem.

For example, when the system is loading a menu page, we could add an icon to signify a waiting or loading process to be completed. User Control and Freedom scored a 3.5, making it the most critical aspect of the prototype.
