Test Participant Recruitment

The next step in starting your research project with Vempathy is to recruit test participants to complete your study. You can either recruit paid participants using Vempathy or recruit your own participants.

For the best results, we recommend you use at least five (5) recordings for your analysis. This is because of research conducted by Bob Virzi which concludes that the first four or five participants find 80% of problems in a usability test and additional subjects are less likely to reveal new information. Additionally, he found that the most severe problems are more likely to be detected by the first few participants. More information is available here:
