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+.

Attractiveness

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

Perspicuity

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

Efficiency

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

Dependability

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

Stimulation

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

Novelty

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

Aesthetics

Does the product look beautiful and appealing?

Adaptability

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

Usefulness

Does using the product bring advantages?

Intuitive use

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

Value

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?

Trust

Are the users data in safe hands and not misused to harm him or her?

Haptics

Feelings which result from touching the product.

Acoustics

Impact of sounds or operating noise of the product to the user experience.

Clarity

Impression towards order, structure and visual complexity of a graphical user interface.

Response behavior

Does a voice assistant behave respectful, polite, and trustworthy?

Response quality

Does the responses of a voice assistant cover the user’s information needs?

Comprehensibility

Does a voice assistant correctly understand the users instructions and questions using natural language?

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). Developement of the scales Response Behavior, Response Quality, and Comprehensibility for voice assistants is described in Klein, Schrepp & Thomaschewski (2020). Development and first validation of the scale Clarity is described in Klein, Hinderks, Schrepp & Thomaschewski (2020). The development of all other scales is described in Schrepp & Thomaschewski (2019).

Available Languages

The UEQ+ is currently available in more than 20 languages. When new scales are added to the UEQ+ framework it will require some time until translations are available. Thus, these new scales may not be available in all translations. Only the German and English templates will always contain all scales.
