18.1 Goal-directed UX evaluation

The bottom line for developing the evaluation plan is to be flexible and do what it takes to make it work. We have given you the basics; it is up to you to come up with the variations. Adapt, evolve, transform, invent, and combine methods (Dray & Siegel, 1999). For example, supplement your lab-based test with an analytical method (e.g., your own UX inspection).
