Running Benchmarks

Running Benchmarks

Learn about running benchmarks to continuously measure your user experience.

About this course

The term "benchmark" originally came from surveyors, who would cut a mark into a stone to secure a bracket called a "bench." This would be used as a point of reference for builders. As it relates to user experience, a benchmark provides a point of reference to compare a design's progress over time or to compare a design against other designs.

In this course, we walk through:

  • What a benchmark is and how to think about benchmarking the user experience
  • Continuous testing to measure your designs over time
  • Using benchmarks to assess whether a design should be released and to measure the experience once it is released
