Gutenberg Core Editor User Testing

This is a guest post by Martin Lugton (@martinlugton), Johan Falk (@j-falk) and Lucijan Blagonic (@lucijanblagonic). During WordCamp London contributor day, we created a user testing script to test the features of the Gutenberg editor. The aim was to build a set of instructions so that people can easily carry out user testing, and quickly share the results.
We prepared 18 questions that cover the functionality of the prototype, and created a form for recording the results. This form populates a spreadsheet that gives an overview of each task and each test. This will allow us to identify which tasks are easy for users to complete, and which ones need some further design work.
We did one test run (with only a handful of questions) and one full run with a test subject (Thanks, @Jip). The whole interview is 24 minutes long and can be viewed here:
Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
Tammie Lister (@karmatosed) suggested we add another text field where the user can write down comments. We also added conditional formatting to the results spreadsheet so that tasks which were rated with 3 or lower (out of 5) are marked red. If you want to use this form you can or create your own based on it.How to do
