An evaluation was conducted on the IPS Corporation website using two primary methods; scenario evaluation and heuristic inspection. Scenario-based evaluation looks at domain specific items from the viewpoint of a stakeholder. Heuristic inspection looks at the broader scope of issues that can come from the viewpoint of the stakeholder, but also looks at independent factors of overall usability. Reference the appendix for a complete list of stakeholders, scenarios and heuristics used in the evaluation of the IPS Corporation website.

Problem Description/Characterization:

Entezari, Huang, Wheeler

22

On many of the pages, usually deeper in the site structure, the navigation is split into
many parts. It is not made immediately apparent which link navigates the page, topic, or site.

Examples:

There are two separate “Global Navigation” bars as well as two separate “Page/Topic
Specific Navigation” areas. This is too much information for the user to keep in memory and

offers too many choices, which will eventually lead to an increased confusion of the user.
