Question 12 Level 5 - Application Design

Why should we consider Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Heuristics when developing digital applications?

  1. HCI Heuristics help develop a user-friendly experience

  2. HCI Heuristics help identify data types

  3. HCI Heuristics help identify the purpose of binary numbers

  4. HCI Heuristics help identify when to use different control structures

A is correct

Heuristics are a simple means of checking to see if the user interface meets standardised rules of engagement. It focuses on the user instead of how the device stores different data types, control structures or the role of binary numbers in digital devices.
