Minnesota Usability Study : What Do Users Have to Say About Drupal 7?

Three years after our first round of formal usability testing on Drupal 6, the UX team returned to the University of Minnesota in May 2011 to uncover usability issues and patterns for Drupal 7. After making broad changes in D7, it was critical for us to validate if we are inching forward in our goal. With this aim in mind, we tested eight participants and asked them to perform some tasks. All the participants were site builders with no experience with Drupal.

The intent of the session is to share findings from the study, and discuss how the community can take this initiative forward to make a more usable Drupal 8.

Essential stuff. How

Essential stuff. How core-specific do you expect the reporting will be? Or, how much value will there be in this for people and organisations in their *current* way of building and working with Drupal?
