Hi,

We have verified that the most helpful negative review concerns usability. So, me and my colleague will be making usability tests with children, testing ChildsPlay and CognitionPlay.

Usability is a field that concerns us and we have been working with this kind of test for quite some time. And because this two aplication are for children we think that is important to understand how they interact with SchoolsPlay.

With this test we intent to make a report explaining all the process, identifying problems and giving suggestions for improvement.

We saw in the site that you have a new version of Schoolsplay and we like to Know if there is a compiled version that we can test.

Thank you,

    There's no schoolsplay program.
    We can't find the time to get it started.

    Hi,
    Just to make a balance of what we are doing...

    During the last month, we made all the papers we need to do the usability tests (questionnaires, the usability tasks and heuristics grids).Furthermore, we are going to do "enjoyability" tests according to Malone's heuristics.
    This week, we are going to finish the tests with the users and then we will analize the data and make a report to share with the community.

      Hello!

      Like we agree we made the usability tests to Schoolsplay so we are sending a document with the results and some sugestions to the games we tested.

      We hope the results will help.

      Thank you for the colaboration!

    Thank you very much for the usability tests.
    I will implement the suggested improvements in the new version of childsplay.
