This is my second Task in the GHOPC, and I have chosen another Usability Testing task, but through the BackEnd Management.
Introduce at least 3 new end users to the Joomla! Back end for Managers and write a report on what happens.

This task involves user interface research. The goal of the task is to
identify areas in where users make errors or are confused. The report from
this research can then be used by developers to improve the user interface
in future versions of Joomla!.
For this task you will work with three people who have never used Joomla!
Using a Joomla! 1.5 site with one of the default templates and no
modifications have users attempt tasks such as:
1. Creating an article;
2. Editing an article;
3. Creating sections and categories;
4. Using the contact component.
You can add additional tasks that you think will be useful.
1. Knowledge of Joomla!
2. Good observational skills
A report describing your research process and what you learned about
strengths and weaknesses of the Joomla! user interface.
Extra Credit (optional)
1. Expand your research to more than three users.
2. Develop specific suggestions to address issues that you identify.
Although, I was just wondering, would it be better to format it a different way, rather than just use the same formatting as the other usability test? It may make it more interesting.
Anyway, thank you for having me, and hope to talk to you all soon.
