So, I designed/suggested some gesture for some actions for my college project. The design I made is based on common touch gesture (by common, I mean gesture usual gesture like 'tap with one finger' to do Select) and some that I based on real-world gesture. Then, I want to test those gesture I made to User. Like, do they like it? Which one did they prefer? (I give more than one gesture suggestion for an action)
But I'm confused, what research method I should use? Because Users have role, I thought it could be User-Centered Design. Then because Users only have roles in the end (like, give their feedback to my gesture suggestion), I thought maybe its method is Usability Testing. But then, since my focus is on the gesture itself and which gesture user preferred, I have a doubt it goes as far as usability...
Now I'm really confused, what Research Method I should use? Is there any research method/evaluation to evaluate touch gesture? Any example on that?
I'm sorry if I ask in wrong place, and maybe please tell me where I should ask.
