I am building a web application for a closed community of homeschoolers. The tool should help parents find friends for their homeschooling children in the close neighborhood.
So, I have the Edit My Profile page. Now I’m stuck with the View Profile mode representation, specifically with the Children section. I have 3 variants, each has cons & pros.
Full-screen images (I’ve translated only relevant text to English)
The profile will be displayed as a card in a list of other profiles during the search.
Variant 1 emphasizes children’s interests, they pop into eyes immediately.
Variant 2 makes info scanning more smooth.
Variant 3 makes profile card more compact.
- The list may contain 20+ such profile cards. So, my homeschooling parents need to easily scan a large amount of information.
- They want to easily spot like-minded profiles according to the children ages and interests (no filter by age or interest, there are reasons for this).
- Homeschooling parents usually perform several tasks simultaneously and with many distractions.
What layout to choose? I need another set of eyes on the problem.
Do I need to set up a separate user test for all variants and measure how quickly users find relevant information? I have only about 10 users for testing, which is not enough for such a thing, I suppose. The problem seems to be not audience specific and I hope someone could advise me from their experience.
