comment A good ux patten for search box in the landing page vs. search box in other pages?
What's confusing about option 1? I might not be visualizing it right, but I feel like having it be the main focus on the homepage and allowing it to be smaller in the header on other pages is fine, as long as the other pages are consistent.

comment What's used more to submit a search, enter or submit button?
LukeW's "clear path to completion" definitely plays into this, I'd add that giving them a call to action allows the user to finish the form in his or her own way. I'm an "enter/return" guy, but I know plenty of people (less-than-tech-savvy) that will ALWAYS click an action and don't understand that enter does the same thing.

comment How do I represent null values in a line chart?
Can you post a mockup or wireframe for this? I think I understand, but it would be helpful to see the exact context

comment What fields to drop from the registration form?
If your goal is to get a user to sign up, the fewest fields necessary to have a unique ID, is the right number, like ChrisF said. I'll say this, look at the way LinkedIn does things, they nag you in a very Game Theory way to complete your profile ("Enter this info to get 5% closer to being complete!")

comment How to measure Learnability?
You could, perhaps take the variables into account and instead of looking at time in seconds, find the percentage faster a user can do things. For working on a live site using analytics, I'd not look at how long it takes them to do multiple tasks, but instead look at each task as it's own metric (as some users may stop after 2 tasks)

comment Is a lightbox considered a dialog box?
This might sound glib (and I don't mean it to, but that's why i've made it a comment not an answer), but I feel like a lightbox is a tool. It can be used for a dialog box, in which case I'd call it that, it can also be used for other purposes... and when used for other things, I'd call it by that name.

comment How do I figure out what people need by observing?
And if you have more assignments like this in the future just think "In my regular life, where do I get frustrated" and go from there :D

comment How do I figure out what people need by observing?
After watching them, then figure out pain points: did anyone have odd questions for baristas at starbucks? Were people confused which subway stop to take? How did the cashiers at the grocery store handle produce that wasn't labeled?
