The Bauer Redesign

Feedback Opportunities

Thank you to the stakeholders who participated in our various opportunities for feedback as we prepared to launch the redesigned Bauer College website. The Bauer Redesign Team hosted focus groups, in-person usability testing and remote usability testing over Summer 2013, gaining valuable insight from participants that led to improvements prior to launch.

Soon, this section of the website will house reports and in-depth information garnered from the feedback opportunities.

Focus Groups

Participants came on campus to preview the redesigned bauer.uh.edu website and gave your open-ended feedback, alongside other Bauer College stakeholders. Each participant received a Bauer prize pack, including a branded T-shirt, water bottle and notepad.

Remote Usability Testing

From users’ personal computers or mobile devices, they were asked to complete specific tasks on each version of the site before completing an online survey to rate the experience.
