The Institute of Museum & Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership Grant funded and ESIP supported Data Management Training Clearinghouse (DMTC) has added a new Resource Assessment capability to the DMTC’s resource description pages! The Resource Assessment capability is an innovative addition to the DMTC as very few, if any existing registries offer the option for a user of an educational resource (whether a learner or a trainer/instructor) to provide feedback to the resource creator or other potential users. The user assessments will provide feedback on the user’s reaction to the resource and the perceived impact of its use upon their data skills capacity. Before finalizing the design and navigation of this capability, however, the DMTC team and Advisory Board members would like to test the usability of the pages where the Assessment option appears in the new DMTC user interface (e.g., resource description pages). During this working session, ESIP Community members are invited to try out the pages using structured usability testing procedures. Session attendees will have options for performing moderated tasks, documenting the paths taken to fulfill specific needs, and commenting upon the utility, design, and look and feel of the pages. The feedback offered by the session attendees will significantly inform final tweaks to the design of the DMTC (and be GREATLY appreciated) as we close out our IMLS funded project and envision continued development and maintenance of the platform moving forward.
