RECOMMENDED

STANDARDS


1.

Place LOGOUT at the top of main home page or
on
each page and keep it consistently at the top

(see NCS Staff
Portal)
.


2.

Th
e default value for any form control

should not be
set

to any value other than NULL because users can sometimes
mistakenly skip form items, and if you set a default value

to something that is NOT NULL

for a control, you inaccurately
assume th
at’s what the user intended to select.


3.

Use some form of divider to separate the footer (which contains the Greater Chicago Study Center logo and address, and
revision version.) from other web content.

Also, “Greater Chicago Study Center” is mentio
ned thre
e times
in three different
ways
in the footer which is overkill.


4.

For
child
form controls
that ask one to expand
after
selecting OTHER
from the parent
item, only display these if and after
OTHER is selected
from the parent
item. And, when you display the
child form control
, indent it after the
parent item to
make it understood it is a sub
-
item

or child

of the parent.


5.

If possible, provide breadcrumbs throughout the website so users know where they are and how to navigate back.


6.

Maintain consistent layout
.




The “
Note: Fields mark as ( * ) are mandatory fields
” text should consistently display at the same locati
on for all
pages that have them,
whether that be at the top, at the bottom, at the top and bottom, or whatever.




Be consistent with the use of links

and buttons. Links should be used when directing users to another view, while
buttons are for submitting data. I have seen buttons used to direct users to another page.




Keep the form layout simple. Left align the form, as people naturally read from le
ft to right and then down. Therefore,
avoid the use of
multiple
columns for layout.


7.

Add context sensitive error messages. “Something went wrong” is fine for testing, but in production knowing what went
wrong immediately (if possible) will be important.


LOGIN

PAGE


A login page should always let users know what to do if they forget their username or password.

1.

Contact Type



a.

This
dropdown box overlaps
to
the
Comment

te
xtbox, of the second column
.
I assume there are columns due to the
grey vertical lines.


b.

Perhaps
this section should be worded "Form of Contact" or "Contact Method" because
when I think of "Contact
Type", I also think of the type of person in relation to someone like

a
: relative, friend, neighbor, etc.


2.

The child control

Contact Type (Other)

shou
ld only display if and after OTHER
was selected
from the parent item

Contact Typ
e


item.

Right now, it is a grey box which looks out of place.
When

Contact Type (Other)
” displays, it should:


a.

be indented because it is a
child of parent item
Contact Type

and


b.

read as
"if Contact Type is OTHER, explain"


3.

One can enter a
past or
future date for
Contact Date
. Should that be allowed?


4.

Another way of wording
Who was contacted

is "Person Contacted." Just a thought.


5.

The order

of questions really should be
--

the order in which the interview
is
conducted or data is recorded
:
Contact D
ate
,

Contact Start Time
,
Who was contacted
,
Contact Type
,
Contact End Time
, and then
Comment
.


6.


Again,
only display the child control
Who was contacted (Other)

if

and after option OTHE is
selected from the
parent
time
Who was contacted
.

And, when

Who was

contacted (Other)


is displayed
, it should:



a.

be indented because it is a
child of parent time

Who was contacted


and


b.

read something like
"if Person Contacted is OTHER,
please
explain."


7.


The layout of the screener should be one column, not three, espe
cially when there is nothing in the third column
(confusing). The
Comment

box should appear at the end, if the intent is to allow interviewers to make comments that is
not already mentioned via the other (above) items. If this is an interview, keep it simp
le in which the interviewer can
easily go down the screen item by item, rather than start at the top of column 1, go down item by item, got to top of
column 2, go down item by item, etc. This is especially annoying if you are reading off a screen.

8.

Tried st
opping a pregnancy screener in the middle (assuming call lost or caller had to

go suddenly) but was unable to
get
out of the survey (training my fix this issue but I’m not sure). When skipping to the last screen and clicking “finish” an
error comes up ind
icating that something went wrong.


9.

Auto calculations: It may be intentional to catch typing errors or invalid information from the person being interviewed,
but a couple areas where there could be auto calculations stood out:


a.

DOB and age entries

b.

Due
date, date of last menstrual cycle

1.

The
name the screener interview (
e.g.,
INS_QUE_PregScreen_INT_HILI_P2_V2.0) is cryptic. Can there be a
friendlier

description?


2.

The entire instruction

should not be italicized because it makes it harder to read it. Only italicize text

to stress a word,
phras
e
, or statement
.


Close Contact


1.

After clicking on the “
Close Contact
” link, I am taken to a view in which some questions has already been addressed in the
previous page such as:
Contact Type, Contact Type (Other), Contact Date, Contact Start Time, Contact

End Time, Who was
contacted
.

These items should be excluded because the user had already provided them in the previous section.


2.

Dropdown boxes

appear to
overlap to the next column. Just use a one column layout.


3.

Do not display
child
“Other” textboxes
-
-

Contact Type (Other)
,
Who was contacted (Other)
,
Language (Other)
, etc.


unless
OTHER was selected in the parent item.


4.

For any control, avoid setting it to a default value other than null, as users can accidently skip the item and you
inaccurately
assu
me the default value is the value the user intended to select.

1

The “sections” part should be
aligned to the
left. It
is currently
aligned to
the right and blank on the left which looks
odd. Make
everything left a
ligned which is easier for users to view

and traverse through the items
.



Minnesota Review:

2

Date/time stamps should not include seconds. That’s hard to determine by looking at
a clock.


3

It would be nice if the date/time stamp pop
-
up would go away after clicking “Now”
instead of forcing “done” to be
clicked


4

Responses to
i
nstrument items should not be numbered. In the above example, it’s odd that the item “Insert
date/time stamp” is
label

“1)” and the
only
textbox to enter the response is labeled “1.”
Also, the instru
ment items
should be aligned for faster and easier readability.
I
n the above example, the response appears farther left than the
question.


5

Keep the

Previous section

text next to and on the same line as

Next section
”.




6

The item “Insert date/time s
tamp” is mentioned twice under the “
Final interviewer
-
completed questions





7

Should there be any data validation on telephone numbers at least providing a warning? Same question with zip codes
(currently letters can be entered)

1.

The “
Your Name
” textbox should be separated into three testboxes for first, middle and last names. With one textbox,
users can enter their name in any or
der which puts you in the position of having to interpret which part is the
text is
the first, middle and last.

This ensures you have the correct name.


2.

State

field should be a dropdown

box, not defaulting to a particular state.


3.

Phone number fields should

require area code as well, and check for that..


4.

Don’t set a default value for the

Preferred way to contact you?
” dropdown

box
.


5.

You might be interested in adding a textbox for us
ers to ask their question. This

way, you would be prepared to
answer their question when you call them. Just a thought.

1.

W
hen I first

the table at the bottom says “No records found.” Don’t display this if a search has
not been made yet

which is the case when a user first enters this page

i.

after OTHER
is selected

something
like “If Outreach Mode is OTHER,
then
explain.” Same thing with “

ii.

Is there suppose to be a form control
right after
Primary outreach target
?

I
can’t tell.


iii.

The “
Add

target
” and “
Remove
” links are on two different lines

which looks confusing
. They should
be displayed right next to each other, on the same line.
And, it should be read as “Add Target” and
“Remove Target” to be consistent.


iv.

The reminder “

ADD TARGET and REMOVE TARGET links are self

I could not tell.


ii.

The note “

” is not necessary, as
the ADD EVALUATION and REMOVE EVALUATION links are self
-
explanatory.


iii.

The “
Add evaluation
” and “

They should appear next
to each
other, on the same line and, for consistency, read as

Add Evaluation

i.

Is there suppose to be a
form control for “

ii.

The “Add staff member” and “Remove” links should appear next to each other, on the same line, and
for consistency, read as “

A
CTIVITIES

TAB


1.

When I first navigate to
this
tab, the table at the bottom says "
No records found
" yet I haven't performed a

search yet. It's
confusing. Don't display this if a search
has not been performed yet
.


2.

The "
Import activities from xml or from csv
" link should not be on the same line as "
Source
" and "
Create new source
"
controls because they are two different things. Al
so, if I click on the "
Import activities from xml or from csv
" link before
selecting a source, will the import contain all activities for all sources?


Would anyone ever want that information? If a
source has to be selected before one can import then only
display the "
Import activities from xml or from csv
" link when a
source already has been selected.


3.

Is the "
Export Options: XML CSV Excel
" for sources or activities?


I could not tell by the way it is worded. If it is for
activities, then it should not be

placed on the same line where the two source controls are.


4.

The buttons EDIT, ADVANCED EDIT and DELETE are too close to each other. Can there be some spacing between
them?


Better yet, make the EDIT and ADVANCED EDIT buttons into links, and clicking on th
ese links, takes users to a view
to input values.


Buttons are for submitting something while links take one to another view. Same thing under "
Activity
Types
."



Minnesota Review:
NCS Navigator


5.

The CREATE NEW ACTIVITY button should be a link because it takes you to a different view.


R
EPORT

TAB


1.

C
an't these controls be drop
-
down boxes:
Study name
,
Site name
, and
Activity label

OR are you giving users the freedom
to enter a
nything? What if someone enters

"Super site" for the Site name?


2.

W
hen a search is performed, indicate if there is
no data found if such is the case.


I did a search for "Minnesota" for "
Site
Name
" and got nothing back so I am left to wonder if there is something wrong with the application or no such data exists.


3.

The SEARCH and RESET FILTERS buttons should appear at
the bottom right after the input controls. Otherwise, they
appear in odd places when you alter the window/screen size. Also, it makes better sense to put them at the bottom since a
user would be clicking on it after inputing values into the controls.


4.

I w
onder if clicking on the "
Activities scheduled from
" and "
to
" textboxes should prompt the calendar widget.


I'm
always hesitant to allow users hand
-
enter a date value. Using the calendar widget prevents users from entering a non
-
existing date.


L
AYOUT


1.

Th
ere are some breadcrumbs provided here and there but it is not consistent.


For example, the
Dashboard

tab also
displays the
Dashboard

link on the brown bar below it, where the breadcrumb is (this is also true of the
Activities
,
Administration

and
Reports

tab in which
Activities
,

Administration

and
Reports

are

displayed respectively, in the
breadcrumb); however, for the
Calendar

tab,
Studies

is display in the breadcrumb. I don't get the connection.


Another
example of discrepancy in labeling things would be

the Administration tab. I click on the "
Manage sites
" link, the brown
bar below indicates "
Admin / Manage sites
", yet, if I click the "
Set manual activity source
" link from the Administration
tab, the brown bar displays "
Admin / Manage sources,
" and for
the "
Purge study
" link, the breadcrumb displays
"
Home
".


2.

It seems like some places are missing a button. For example, go to
Administration

tab >
Purge study
.


After the warning,
click YES. There's no submit button after entering a value in the "
Study
" fiel
d.


3.

Some drop
-
down boxes display, by default, a blank field (which is good), forcing users to select an item in the drop
-
down
box while others display the first item on the list sorted in alphabetical order.


Never
set the default value of a drop
down
box t
o a value in the list because users do sometimes mistakenly skip an item on a form but you assume the item selected
in that drop
-
down box is the value the user intended to select.


4.

Buttons are for submitting things and links takes you to a new page/view. I

notice that clicking on some buttons take you
to a new page/view.


5.

The background shading of data input sections vary in colors.


On the
Report

tab >
Scheduled Activities Report
, it is light
brown, and on the
Activities

tab, it is light grey. Color consis
tency is important because it helps users sift through things
quickly.


6.

On each tab, there is a brown bar that displays the breadcrumb, and right above it, a white bar that displays
"Tasks."


These two items really should be one navigation display. For exa
mple, the navigation display (a combination of
the brown and while bar) for the "
Report
" tab should be "
Report: Scheduled Activities
," for the "
Administration
" tab, it
should read "
Administration: Manage sites :: Manage users :: Manage study teams :: Set m
anual activity source ::
Configure PSC :: Configure authentication :: Manage plugins :: Grid services configuration :: Purge study
," etc. BUT
if you really want to display both separately, you should display the brown bar above the white because "Tasks" is

a
subset of the former. Also, depending on what was select, the appropriate task should be highlighted. For example, from
the "
Activities
" tab, if a user selected "
Activities Type
" to display, then the words "
Activities Type
" listed right after
"Tasks" on

the white bar should be highlighted, a cue that
lets users know where they are.
