(a) What is the fundamental rule of user interface design?

(b) Usability can be defined as a combination of 5 factors. Name 4 of them (or all 5 for one bonus point!)


(c) We all know that different people have different preferences and different levels of expertise. Does this mean that a good user interface should have lots of different ways of doing each major task that it supports? Why or Why not?

(d) The ultimate test of a user interface is how well it works when actually used by members of the target user population. What are two ways of evaluating an interface when you can't actually watch as it is used?
