Abstract [en]

This paper discusses how people are affected in a controlled testing environment. The aim was to see if the results from a controlled environment are reliable, or if internal and external factors like a test leader, testing equipment, stress and motivation had an impact on the result. The test participants did two different tests, one with difficult tasks and one with easy tasks. The tasks were performed on a computer. The testing environment was a small room with one test leader and a surveillance camera. The theories presented in this paper are about quantitative and qualitative research, which support our questionnaire and interviews. We also drew on social psychology in order to determine how people are affected by supervision. Our result shows that user testing in controlled environments has a negative effect on the result. There are always internal and external factors that make the participant behave in an abnormal way.
