user profile

characterization of a system’s target population providing information about the users that is useful in making design decisions. The information in a user profile is usually obtained through a questionnaire given to the target users. A typical user profile might explore, for instance, how much experience users have with computing or a particular piece of software, what type of physical limitations they have, how frequently they perform common tasks, or what education or reading level they might have.
