The focus of the research was the application of psychometric methods to the development and evaluation of questionnaires that measure user satisfaction with system usability. The primary goals of this paper are to (1) discuss the psychometric characteristics of four IBM(More)
Factor analysis of Post Study System Usability Questionnaire (PSSUQ) data from 5 years of usability studies (with a heavy emphasis on speech dictation systems) indicated a 3-factor structure consistent with that initially described 10 years ago: factors for System Usefulness, Information Quality, and Interface Quality. Estimated reliabilities (ranging from(More)
A three-item after-scenario questionnaire was used in three related usability tests in different areas of the United States. The studies had eight scenarios in common. After participants finished a scenario, they completed the After-Scenario Questionnaire (the ASQ). A factor analysis of the responses to the ASQ items revealed that an eight-factor solution(More)
Correlations between prototypical usability metrics from 90 distinct usability tests were strong when measured at the task-level (r between .44 and .60). Using test-level satisfaction ratings instead of task-level ratings attenuated the correlations (r between .16 and .24). The method of aggregating data from a usability test had a significant effect on the(More)
