On user test day, I’ll order in some sort of food/snacks (I’m thinking pizza) and we’ll have a variety of drinks for our users (and for us for when we finish this big task!)
Users will need to commit to an hour during our class block or starting as early as 4:00.
For the STI/STD: we need six students. It would be good to have a diversity of age (within the demographic range), gender, race, and sexual orientation. Between us (well, this part of the us doesn’t include me), we need to find these users to come our class on 4-4.
For the HBP: I am working with a group on campus to see if we can’t recruit some 50+ folks from a specific organization that has often helped classes and researchers in the past. I’ll know more about this by the middle of the week of 3-27. (The contact was leaving for vacation the day I emailed.) However, we also need to tap our own networks to see if we can find some folks to user test. In this, diversity is again good, but I imagine it may be a bit harder. We also need 6 participants for this, as well.
Your task is to work on recruitment. It does not work out evenly for every group to try and recruit one person so as we have done all term, we need to work more collaboratively to get our participants.
To work on recruitment, you need to respond (reply all) to the email I sent to let us know who you may have access to for recruitment purposes. So for example, I may email everyone and say: I believe I can get a 60 yo, female for the HBP testing. This way we can keep track of who we are recruiting. it’s ok if we have some overlap in participant demographics. We just need to do the best we can.
