I am conducting a usability test of a sports website. I'm trying to find potential usability errors and design flaws for my website.
I have a list of tasks that I will give to my participants to carry out.
Let's say one task is to change the email address for the user account.
Then the next task is to register for tickets for an event
Would I have to set the page back to the home page after each task or should the participant follow through the next task from the last page they were visiting?
Some links are available from certain pages, so reverting back to the home page may produce different results to that if it was just continuous (from the last page they visited).
