Abstract : The following report outlines the first iteration of a heuristic-based usability assessment of the Post-Mission Assessment for Tactical Training-Trends Analysis (PMATT-TA) online software system. A unique approach to usability heuristic assessment (i.e., EQUATE) was used that enabled respondents to provide more detail than a traditional survey-based approach allots (e.g., PSSUQ, SUS). Not only is this approach more comprehensive than existing surveys, it also affords respondents the opportunity to articulate issues they identified while soliciting suggestions for how to fix those issues. The resulting analysis provides valuable information to program developers that will enable them to fix issues and optimize system functionality.
