  • Measured by form completions

This experiment shows a comparison between floating-field labels vs top-aligned labels. In the control, the form labels first appeared inlineĀ and as users would begin typing, they floated to the top of the field. The variation had fixed field labels above the form fields at all times. Impact on signups was measured.

For each pattern, we measure three key data points derived from related tests:

REPEATABILITY - this is a measure of how often a given pattern has generated a positive or negative effect. The higher this number, the more likely the pattern will continue to repeat.

SHALLOW MEDIAN - this is a median effect measured with low intent actions such as initiating the first step of a lengthier process

DEEP MEDIAN - this is derived from the highest intent metrics that we have for a given test such as fully completed signups or sales.
