According to the disadvantage that traditional software interface testing focuses on the overall evaluation of the satisfaction with human–computer interaction (HCI) without further consideration of the decision-making process rules of human in HCI and gives insufficient guidance for interface design. An approach for test of software HCI design based on decision-making model is proposed by analyzing the information visual search and logic decision-making process in HCI process and considering the effect of software interface design elements on decision-making. The test mainly includes tests of interface color matching, visual search efficiency, logic decision-making, and time pressure. The test elements provide better guidance for the design of software interface.
