Wizard of Oz Testing

Wizard of Oz testing in usability engineering practices is traditionally done by showing the user a low-fidelity prototype (Ex. a drawing on paper) and asking the user to navigate the interface and execute a given task. The user can point to a button, signifying execution of the button. The test coordinator (Wizard) then shows the user the next page in the sequence. The goal is usually to observe the use and effectiveness of a proposed user interface by test participants.
