create high-fidelity designs and prototypes in figma week 6 quiz answers

Test your knowledge on coming up with research insights

1. What is an insight?

  • An assessment that allows participants to complete core tasks in a product without direct supervision
  • A step-by-step examination of a group of users and their needs
  • An assessment of how easy it is for participants to complete core tasks in a product
  • An observation that helps a designer understand the user or their needs from a new perspective

2. What are the four steps in turning observations into actionable insights? Select all that apply.

  • Find peculiarities in data
  • Gather data in one place
  • Organize the data
  • Find themes in the data
  • Come up with insights

3. Consider the following scenario:

During a usability study for a fast-food app, many participants had trouble completing their order. Multiple participants noted that the color contrast of the interface made it difficult to find the “Complete Order” button. Some participants with visual impairments could not differentiate between the different lines, buttons, and negative space in the app. The designers grouped these types of observations under the theme “Color.”

What kind of insight can the designers draw from these “Color” observations, and how can they improve their app?

  • The participants had trouble completing their order because the buttons weren’t responsive
  • The participants had difficulty navigating the app because of the color palette. The designers need to make the app more accessible by updating the colors to have higher contrast.
  • The pictures on the fast-food ordering app were not clear enough for participants, so the designers need to replace the images.

4. Consider the following scenario:

Designers conducted a usability study for an app they’re developing for a hospital. The app is meant to help patients fill out their paperwork on a computer or from their phone. The designers collected multiple helpful insights to improve their design. One particular insight stood out: The available selection for illnesses and symptoms wasn’t expansive enough.

Based on this feedback, what can the team do to improve their design?

  • Keep the selections as they are, but include an open text box for detailed descriptions of their visit.
  • Add selections and symptoms that are common to the region that the hospital operates in.
  • Include expansive selections and an “Other” section, so patients can accurately describe the reason for their visit to the hospital.

Test your knowledge on handing off designs

5. Jean-Marie is a UX designer at a design agency. They have just finished their designs. The agency’s lead engineer has requested the design specifications. What can Jean-Marie do to successfully prepare the design for the engineering team?

  • Finalize every aspect of the designs before sharing it with the team
  • Send the engineering team a list of problem areas that are not yet addressed in the design
  • Email an engineer and begin working on the next project
  • Provide the design system, mockups, prototypes, and specifications

6. Mona just finished their designs in Figma and is preparing to send them off to production. What can she do to successfully deliver them to the engineering team? Select all that apply.

  • Create thumbnails that include hyperlinks, specifications, and requirements for the design
  • Set the file permissions to view only
  • Test and share the prototypes
  • Exclude color schemes

7. There’s no singular “right” way to send designs off to production. Procedures can vary by company and depend on how teams prefer to conduct the development process. Which of the following is true when you’re ready to deliver your design to the engineering team?

  • Send the engineering team a detailed list of problem areas that are not yet addressed in the design
  • Leave the designs incomplete when you send them to the engineering team
  • Provide the design system, mockups, prototypes, and specifications
  • Begin working on the next design project

8. An entry-level designer is responsible for deciding how the hand-off process flows for their organization.

  • True
  • False

9. When design and engineering teams work together simultaneously to complete a product, what is one challenge they might face?

  • Coordinating a project hand-off
  • Slowing down project timelines
  • Identifying areas that have to be redone as they design and engineer
  • Establishing a project deadline

Test your knowledge on case studies in UX portfolios

10. Fill in the blank: A case study is a(n) ____ of a design project that typically includes the project goals and objectives, your role in the project, the process your team followed, and the outcome of the project.

  • summarized presentation
  • data-driven report
  • observation
  • rubric

11. Why are case studies beneficial to have in a portfolio? Select all that apply.

  • Allows UX designers to understand users and their needs from a new perspective
  • Helps designers turn observations into actionable insights
  • Demonstrates a designer’s willingness to collaborate with a team
  • Serves as a visible demonstration of design knowledge

12. Harjot is organizing a case study of the website they designed for a local architect. The architect specializes in designing futuristic, eco-conscious homes for clients looking to build from the ground up. What type of information should Harjot include in the case study for their portfolio? Select all that apply.

  • A hero image
  • Goals and objectives
  • The client’s phone number and email
  • Highlight challenges

13. How should case studies be presented in a portfolio? Select all that apply.

  • Case studies should include every aspect of the design and the design process.
  • Case studies should be presented in a way that’s concise and engaging.
  • Case studies should be visually appealing.
  • Case studies should be presented as straightforward as possible.
