I'm looking for a technically inclined writer to formulate 10 practice questions on human factors and human-computer interaction topics.
Questions will be multiple choice with four possible answers– test takers will choose one ‘best’ answer. Each question should also include a thorough explanation (using basic graphics if needed), as well as any additional resources the test taker may find useful in learning more about the topic.
Topic areas for the 10 questions include:
1. Models/Theories/Practices (3)
a. Human factors concepts
b. Human factors analysis/engineering
c. Human limitations
2. HCI Evaluation (4)
a. Usability Concepts
b. Usability testing
c. Predictive models
d. Usability testing techniques/GOMS/KLM/etc.
3. Interface design standards (2)
b. Other interface design guidelines/principles
4. Usability engineering (1)
a. Usability Standards
These questions are to be part of a larger scale exam aimed at technically-savvy physicians. The test-taker is a physician with many years of experience working in high-level/executive positions in health care organizations. This exam will evaluate their preparedness for positions that require clinical, technical, and leadership skills.
The questions may contain a clinical vignette, an experimental or statistical observation, a definition or classification, an administrative problem, an application of a principle or regulation, or any situation potentially faced in practice.
The ideal candidate should:
- Have general experience/knowledge in human factors, HCI, and/or UX/UI topics and be able to explain sometimes complex concepts in a clear and concise way
- Understand the healthcare system & how technical concepts may apply to them
- Be able to follow guidelines for writing test questions (http://www.nbme.org/pdf/itemwriting_2003/2003iwgwhole.pdf)
If you need any additional clarification, I've attached some sample questions on a related topic if you'd like to check them out.
