User experience testing (also known as usability testing, user testing and UX testing) is when a company evaluates its products or services by testing it with representative users. It generally involves people conducting various tasks on a website or app whilst specialist software captures their behaviour to provide an insight into what works, what doesn’t, why people are staying on a website – and most importantly, why they are leaving, so that brands can make improvements and remain competitive. User experience testing can also be conducted in shops to assess the overall usability of the store – from layout to browsing experience.

The participation rates are fantastic, the best I’ve ever seen in fact! 10 of them have completed 100% of tasks, 5 are between 88% and 97% complete and only one at 50%.
