Quiz 1: Design Constraints and Making Choices

Q1. Personas are purely fictional characters.

  • True
  • False

Q2. How many personas should designers create for a design project?

  • Often one or two personas are all that’s needed
  • As many personas as it takes to represent everything designers have learned in the formative work
  • The number of personas should match the number of classes of target users that the designers have identified in the formative work
  • The more personas, the better
  • Three to four personas are usually a sweet spot

Q3. Personas include different types of information, from demographics to motivations and sociocultural context. How should designers decide what information to include?

  • They should focus on making the information as complete as possible
  • They should focus on idiosyncratic characteristics of people they encountered in the formative research that will make personas as vivid as possible
  • They should focus mostly on demographic information; other types of information are secondary
  • They should focus on information that contributes to the distinct needs and potential barriers to and motivations for use that each class of target users has in relation to the technology being developed

Q4. Personas represent target users and are, thus, primarily a distillation of the findings from formative work. Scenarios begin to move designers toward a design solution. How do scenarios do this?

  • By envisioning how a technology might address the needs identified in formative work
  • By enumerating features of the technology being designed
  • By articulating tradeoffs of different design solutions
  • By providing stories that can be put into the ads for the product being designed

Q5. Scenarios help designers reflect on user needs, how technology might address those needs, and potential issues that might arise with the use of the envisioned technology.

  • True
  • False

Q6. Which of the following is not an element of a typical scenario?

  • Agent
  • Actions
  • Location
  • Goals
  • Events

Q7. Why would a designer create storyboards as opposed to write scenarios?

  • To better represent physical environment in which the technology would be used
  • To better represent relationships among multiple people
  • To better envision size or other physical constraints of the technology and its use
  • All of the above

Q8. Excellent drawing skills are needed to create effective storyboards.

  • True
  • False

Q9. It’s typically obvious which design solution, among alternatives they generated, designers should pursue.

  • True
  • False

Q10. Which component of the QOC framework articulates conditions or constraints that the design needs to meet?

  • questions
  • Options
  • Criteria
  • None of the above
