what is prototype testing?

Prototype testing is a type of software testing and an iterative process conducted at the initial stages of the design process. It helps you extend your user research and identify usability issues through pilot tests and extensive testing sessions with real users.

As a result of prototype testing, you can make a data-driven decision to completely redesign or slightly change the design direction, amend major functionalities, or change the information architecture to ease the app navigation.

why do you need prototype testing?

1. To identify design issues early

Prototype testing helps eliminate possible design flaws in the early stages of product development. Alter the design direction based on the target audience feedback and launch a user-friendly product.

2. To test app navigation

Get feedback from real people using various testing methods to record possible navigation errors before you launch the final product.

3. To save time and budget

It is easier and less costly to redesign components and fix navigation at the prototyping stage before presenting the product to the stakeholders and end users. You’ll be saving a lot of time and effort on the product development due to early feedback.

4. To improve user experience

Prototype testing helps ensure that your application meets the needs of your target customer and provides a user-friendly experience.

types of prototype testing

There are 2 types of prototype tests:

Low-fidelity prototypes

Low-fidelity prototypes are wireframes or paper prototypes used at the very early stages of agile product management. You can use those to test the app layout and functionality and evaluate the information architecture.

High-fidelity prototypes

You can use high-fidelity prototypes to identify minor usability issues and get insight on the UX copy performance (readability, image quality). Here you can use prototyping tools (Figma, Sketch, InDesign) to generate interactive prototypes, test the design direction and basic components on the product mockups.

basic usability testing methods

Here are the main usability testing methods to consider in your initial user research:

  • Quantitative and qualitative
  • Unmoderated and moderated
  • In-person and remote tests
