Create Custom Graphs

Instead of manually calculating data and building graphs, Morae creates graphs to help you share results faster, conduct more testing, and spend more time focused on solving usability issues rather than scrubbing data.

Quantitative data provides hard evidence of usability issues, which complements the qualitative highlight videos. Highlight videos appear more professional and powerful with graphs included to support the qualitative video clips.

In this lesson we will cover:

Create a Graph

Follow callouts below to create a graph:

1

Click the Create new graph button.

2

Select an analysis type from the dropdown button.

3

Select a metric for that analysis type from the dropdown button.

4

Select Average (mean) of or uncheck to see the details of each task and participant.

5

Click Edit Metric to define details or the metric and to filter data that appears on the graph.

6

Select to see the graph either By participant or By task.

7

Use All recordings in the graph or select specific recordings.

Graph Analysis Examples

Analyze and graph captured data in unique ways by creating custom graphs specific to your methodology or study. Here are some examples:

Mouse Click Graph

Graph In Device button

Graph Mouseclick Button

Use the graph to measure the number of clicks required to complete a process. Add a constant line to show optimal clicks.

For example, if the goal is for participants to find information on a web site in three clicks or less, you can easily see if that goal has been met.

Mouse Movement Graph

Graph In Device button

Graph Mouse Move button

Use this graph to measure how far the participant's mouse travels to complete tasks.

If there are repetitive stress concerns with the application, minimizing how far users have to move the mouse to complete tasks is important.

Time on Task Graph

Task Analysis Button

Time on Task button

Use this graph to measure efficiency.
Efficiency is usually measured by determining how quickly participants are able to complete scenarios or tasks.
Participants may be able to successfully complete an activity, but they take a long time.

In fact, they may take so long to complete a Web-based task that they find it easier to call someone on the telephone or walk to someone else's desk and ask them.

Time Spent on Web Pages Graph

Web Page Analysis button

Time Spent on Web Page(s) button

Use this graph to measure how long participants spend in each web site being studied.

This measure is particularly useful for field studies when you want to understand when and how long participants spend on each web page.
