Written report

I worked with Progress UX Research to conduct a benchmark usability study of TxTag.org, a major toll collection website under the Texas Department of Transportation.  I planned, facilitated and reported on the usability testing component of the project, and my research partner conducted the heuristic and competitive analysis component.  We combined our findings into a presentation for the client.
