Different users will find different problems. Testing with two users may identify half of the flaws, while six users will find almost 90% of the usability bugs. The testing will take about 2 days. After a single day of usability testing, the work efficiency can be expected to improve by around 50%. Usability testing is therefore a successful method for reducing the difficulty and time for performing a task on a computer. Usability testing can dramatically improve the quality of the work with respect to productivity and also with respect to job satisfaction.

This raises an important question: did the persons who returned the questionnaire have any particular reason for responding? Maybe they all had back pain, and maybe those who had not responded did not have back pain, and therefore were not motivated to return the questionnaire. If their responses had been taken into consideration, the average back pain could have been around 2 or 3. Hence, one must be cautious in the interpretation of the data, particularly when the response rate is low. 3 EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH Experiments are done to investigate specific issues.
