Interaction Design Reflections: Report Writing

This week, we write a mini-report describing our iterations of the prototype design from start to finish.

The Takeaway

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?
