Interaction Design Reflections: Report Writing
This week, we write a mini-report describing our iterations of the prototype design from start to finish.
I’ll spare you the text since it’s largely a rollup of other things I’ve mentioned in previous posts in this series along with a hefty amount of literary fluff.
The objective of this particular assignment was to evaluate our ability to articulate design decisions, challenges and outcomes of a project. The prescribed format for organizing the report was PARL.
What is PARL?
- Problem: What design challenge were you asked to solve?
- Action: What was the plan to address this?
- Results: What was the outcome of your actions?
- Lessons Learned: What did you learn about the domain, research, design and/or yourself?
