A Modular Extension of the User Experience Questionnaire

Logo of the Modular Extension of User Experience Questionnaire
The UEQ+ is a modular extension of the User Experience Questionnaire (UEQ). It contains a larger list of UX scales that can be combined by a UX researcher to build a concrete UX questionnaire adapted to the concrete research question. In this sense the UEQ+ is not a UX questionnaire, it is a tool to build concrete questionnaires optimized for special evaluation scenarios.

Available Scales

Currently the following scales are available. This list may grow in the future. The scales are not independent! Please check the handbook before you create your first questionnaire with the UEQ+.


Overall impression of the product. Do users like or dislike it?


Is it easy to get familiar with the product and to learn how to use it?


Can users solve their tasks without unnecessary effort? Does it react fast?


Does the user feel in control of the interaction? Is it secure and predictable?


Is it exciting and motivating to use the product? Is it fun to use?


Is the design of the product creative? Does it catch the interest of users?


Does the product look beautiful and appealing?


Can the product be adapted to personal preferences or personal working styles?


Does using the product bring advantages?

Intuitive use

Can the product be used immediately without any training or help?


Does the product design look professional and of high quality?

Trustworthiness of Content

Is the information provided by the product of good quality and reliable?

Quality of Content

Is the information provided by the product actual and well-prepared?

The scales Attractiveness, Perspicuity, Efficiency, Dependability, Stimulation and Novelty are part of the UEQ (see Laugwitz, Schrepp & Held, 2008). The scales Haptics and Acoustics are described in Boos & Brau (2017). The development of the scale Trust is described in Hinderks (2016). The development of all other scales is described in Schrepp & Thomaschewski (2019).
