Wireframes. If it is more refined than sketches & line drawings, i.e., showing what finished screen widget would actually look like, then paper prototype. The idea of the paper prototype is that one could "use the software" like a choose your own adventure novel, flipping to the appropriate page based on user decision. These are often used in usability studies to test out design decisions on the cheap.

I'm rusty on my terminology.

I'm trying to describe a process whereby my team was charged ten years ago
with writing a train-the-trainer manual for a CA state department.

All we had was a three-ring binder full of specs and UI mockups. There was
little-to-no information provided as to how, when finally compiled and
released, the SW would actually function.

As a PM would know them, what is the correct terminology for the specs? The
UI mockups?

Thanks much,

Chris Morton
