Task G - Final Evaluation: An evaluation of my ICT solution to the given brief (6 Marks) Introduction: The purpose of this report is to evaluate my ICT solution in relation to the brief given in the project. In doing so identifying my strengths and weaknesses experienced through user feedback. This will include a discussion of the effectiveness of my solution by comparing it to user needs and basing it on their feedback. Ultimately this will give me a guideline of how I can overcome any weaknesses and build them into strengths in future ICT solutions produced. I will be required to gather user feedback as source material for when I evaluate my final solution. This feedback can be taken by various methods such as an interview, a questionnaire, a letter and even a meeting but I must take into account all communication and information passed between my product and the user. I have created a questionnaire for user feedback from which I will be basing my analysis on. I will be answering a series of questions throughout the report in order to deliver the objective required. * How well did your solution meet the user's needs? * Are there any improvements that could be made? * What worked well? * What did meet the user's needs? * What did not meet the user's needs? * What did the user say about your solution? Klassy Karaoke Limited is a multimedia publishing company that produces interactive karaoke products. This is the client which I produced my ICT solution for. I was given a set brief from which I have created my product. This brief stated that I will have to create a sample multimedia product that includes three songs, each of these with standard two sub-sections (with accompanying lyrics and without lyrics). It has to be considered that the multimedia product will need to include a navigation system to allow the user to select the specific song they wish to sing.
When I created my software I forgot to ask the client what screen size it should be created for. Such as, full screen, full screen with frame or window. Therefore I firstly started creating in full screen only to realise the page appeared distorted and the images stretched. I resolved this issue after discussing with the client later on that window size would be more suited. The solution adopted was to optimize my software to suit a smaller screen size. However this resulted in me having to optimize all the necessary images, buttons etc. Bearing in mind this issue I feel that I have met the brief to the standards required and to my best skills and effort. In order to answer the rest of the questions my feedback questionnaire will aid my analysis of the conclusion. * What did meet the user's needs? * What did not meet the user's needs? * What did the user say about your solution? I have created a feedback questionnaire with 10 key questions to help me understand how good or bad my software is and vitally the improvements and suggestions. I have asked 10 people who I believe fit my target audience and intended purpose. My software is called 'Mic-aroke'. It is officially designed to continue Michael Jackson's legacy. Therefore I have asked 10 people who like the artist, if they are his fans and have a passion for his style of music. Below I will be showing my questionnaire with all 10 questions. I will then be analysing each question using graphical format in order to answer the remaining questions. The questionnaire will be shown exactly as presented to each of the 10 users. Feedback Questionnaire: The purpose of this questionnaire is to assess my Karaoke Software from the point of view of the user. Thus enabling me to evaluate my software and improve some aspects of it to suit the user's preferences.
One person's opinion was to have a bit of information about Michael Jackson to introduce the software. These are all 10 questions. As you can see overall my software is meeting the users requirements however there are a few improvements that could be made through various suggestions. These remaining questions have now been answered: What did and did not meet the user's needs? Out of the questions above it can be said that most of my software's features did meet the user needs. However the search page feature did not fully meet the user's needs and people suggested better image quality. Other than these my karaoke software fully meets the user's needs and requirements to a very high standard. Overall 80% of the people thought my software does portray Michael Jackson's legacy. Navigation and the use of buttons also met the user's needs. What did the user say about your solution? This question is answered through my questionnaire and the above graphical and written analysis. Conclusion: I am confident with the solution overall. This has helped to endorse successful evaluation of problems identified during the process of implementation. Because solutions thought off and put in place to address issues have proved satisfactory. Some solutions where recommendations based on feedback sought from the target audience e.g. Michael Jackson fans. These recommendations where further enhanced by being creative in finding the right solution for the right problem during implementation. For example, each process followed from the point of starting up, navigating throughout the software from one screen to another, in selecting the song choices and gaining satisfaction of the skills acquired through this software. Based on the above my solutions helped to maximise best use of graphics, contrasting colours, words used and fonts applied, images and animation adopted throughout. As a consequence the end product is now marketable having explored and covered every eventuality to the satisfaction of Klassy Karaoke Limited. This also takes into account professional opinion of the critics of Klassy Karaoke Limited. This has proved the effectiveness of the solution adopted and implemented. ?? ?? ?? ??
