Don't Test Users, Test Hypotheses (27 Oct 2003)
My colleague Dianne Davis and I developed this approach over several years of testing websites and applications.

Articulating those predictions and thinking of them as hypotheses focuses our usability research and allows us to 'test the design,' not the users.
