comment How to handle nonfunctional elements in prototype?
Our tests don't always allow many researchers to be present, unfortunately. When it only takes a few minutes to add methods for capturing metrics, I thought it may ease the burden of the moderator and allow them to focus more of metrics that can't be easily captured, like body language. Ideally we'd have enough people and time to get everything right, but our users time is extremely limited and meeting with them at all can be a major challenge :)

comment How to handle nonfunctional elements in prototype?
I really appreciate the detailed answer you've provided here. I was hoping to get some insight from actual user testing and it sounds like you've had that experience. We may be looking to let our metrics capture most the interactions, so I was considering putting hit boxes over elements that don't work, just to see where they click, even if there is no feedback, so we can evaluate it later. Then we can see patterns between participants. Any thoughts on that approach?

I definitely agree with the extra information being unobstrusive and likely concise as well. Making sure they understand it is no fault of their own is not something I had thought of, and would clearly be important. Thanks!

You make a really good point with having no cursor differentiation! I hadn't thought of that, but it seems like it would be beneficial in seeing where the users think they should go next. Thanks!

comment What methods do you use to rate user experience of a page?
+1 for heuristics. Nielsen's are the ones we've used in the past, they are usually a good start nngroup.com/articles/ten-usability-heuristics
