The QUIS™ is an instrument which evaluates user satisfaction with the human-computer interface aspect of other software packages and computer systems. It has been standardized over a number of applications and research studies. The QUIS™ assesses six factors of overall reactions to a system and 21 components which contribute to usability. It can be used either in its current form or be modified to meet particular research needs. The QUIS™ includes three versions: paper, Windows, and Macintosh Spinnaker Plus™ stackware.
