expert evaluation

Terms from Statistics for HCI: Making Sense of Quantitative Data

Evaluation carried out by a usability expert rather than an actual user. These are often used for early assessment of a system to avoid the costs of a full usability evaluation. Note that the term 'expert' here refers to usability or UX expertise, not expertise in the domain of the system. Examples of expert evaluation include cognitive walkthrough and heuristic evaluation.
