methods
To redesign the app, we conducted different research methods to help guide our app design.
• Recruited 2 participants who never used the app before
• Using the think aloud method, participants browsed the original app
• Using the card sorting method, participants categorized the info of the app
• Researched online for more in-depth info on the citizenship process & test

Research insights
• Through research, we were able to identify more of what the citizenship test process entails: the questions asked, process of the verbal and written test, study categories, etc.
• The original app provided paints points of the app: inconsistent interactions, confusing navigation
Competing apps
To view how other study apps function, we examined Quizlet, Duolingo and StudyBlue
Research methods
To make the app intuitive and predictable for all types of users: non-native to fluent English speakers, create an app that successfully reinforces learning and create an experience that feels delightful and less daunting
Through iteration, we were able to condense the information architecture to 3 main categories: learn, profile, test.
