A place to discuss user testing.
User testing is testing processes in which the user community, as opposed to developers, performs the tests. (Source: Object Testing Patterns)
Note that it's vital that the user testing not be Testing By Poking Around. Users should work from scenarios that reflect the use cases of the system and reflect their usage of the system. In other words, just because the users do the testing doesn't mean the testing shouldn't be scripted.
