Aroxo recently turned a major corner in its development: We moved from closed functional testing to using real live alpha testers — people who’d never seen Aroxo before. Without doubt, this is one of the most revealing, painful, and valuable stages in creating your start-up.

When launching anything you want to ensure that it works, but also that people find it easy and natural to use. Your [internal] functional testing should cover the first objective, your [open] alpha testing should cover the UI.

 

We employed four different tests to get Aroxo’s system ready for launch, each at a different stage:

1) Over-the-shoulder. To determine the sticking points; where the system confuses users.
2) Task-driven testing. To determine how well the system stands up on its own.
3) Goal-driven testing.
Once you know your site is slick and functional, this is for discovering end-to-end flaws.
