Report no. 60, CMD, Uppsala University, 1995.


This report contains a checklist for finding good and bad points in a graphical user interface. The material is normally used in courses given at CMD to professional user interface developers. In group sessions, the participants practise judging the quality of an interface. Each group work with one aspect only, but judges about 5-6 different applications. The following aspects are treated:
  • Disposition of the screen area
  • Menues
  • Orientation and navigation
  • Input sequences
  • Layout
  • Colour coding etc
  • Feedback
  • Icons and buttons
  • Placement of interface elements
For each aspect there is an explanatory overview text followed by lists of good and bad points.
This report is in Swedish.
