QUIS™: Questionnaire for User Interaction Satisfaction™ 7.0 (ISR IP)

ISR intellectual property available to license

The Questionnaire for User Interaction Satisfaction (QUIS™) was developed by a multi-disciplinary team of researchers in the Human/Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) at the University of Maryland as a tool for assessing users’ subjective satisfaction with specific aspects of the human/computer interface. The QUIS™ team successfully addressed the reliability and validity problems found in other satisfaction measures, creating a measure that is highly reliable across many types of interfaces.

QUIS™ version 7.0 contains a demographic questionnaire, a measure of overall system satisfaction along six scales, and hierarchically organized measures of 11 specific interface factors (screen factors, terminology and system feedback, learning factors, system capabilities, technical manuals, on-line tutorials, multimedia, voice recognition, virtual environments, internet access, and software installation). Each area measures the users’ overall satisfaction with that facet of the interface, as well as the factors that make up that facet, on a 9-point scale. The questionnaire is designed to be configured according to the needs of each interface analysis by including only the sections that are of interest to you. QUIS™ is available in a paper or html version.
