Abstract

This study extended expert testing beyond the traditional practice of including only technical subject-matter experts as test participants. The study investigated how participants' expertise in different domains influenced expert testing of a user manual written to accompany a technical computer program. The program is intended for international distribution to materials science and engineering (MSE) researchers.
