I hope the responses to this poll are honest. So far, they show that we are a
long way from where many of us say we want to be on usability testing. Of
course, you have to take things as you are able to, and in my place we're still
teaching TW 101. Usability testing is somewhere in the 500s, I fear.
Real usability testing would invalidate 90% of the on-line help
documents produced since 1995.
