Sample Size Calculator for Discovering Problems in a User Interface

By: Jeff Sauro • October 1, 2006

Use this calculator to determine the number of users you'd need to test given the probability of detecting a problem. If the probability of detecting the problem is unknown, this calculator also allows you to estimate the problem occurrence (p) from sample data.[Read More]

Graph and Calculator for Confidence Intervals for Task Times

By: Jeff Sauro • February 6, 2006

Visualizing your task time data is an essential step in understanding its distribution and computing accurate confidence intervals. This calculator creates a dot-plot of your task times, transforms the raw data to adjust for non-normality and computes the intervals.[Read More]
