What does it measure?The scales of the questionnaire cover a comprehensive impression of user experience. Both classical usability aspects (efficiency, perspicuity, dependability) and user experience aspects (originality, stimulation) are measured.
AttractivenessOverall impression of the product. Do users like or dislike the product or service?
PerspicuityIs it easy to get familiar with the product? Is it easy to learn how to use the product?
EfficiencyCan users solve their tasks without unnecessary effort? Does it react fast?
DependabilityDoes the user fee in control of the interaction? Is it secure and predictable?
StimulationIs it exciting and motivating to use the product? Is it mentally stimulating and fun to use?
NoveltyIs the design of the product innovative and creative? Does it catch the interest of users?

Download the short Version of the UEQ
A short version of the UEQ with just 8 items is available for some special application scenarios.
The user experience questionnaire (UEQ) is a widely used questionnaire to measure the subjective impression of users towards the user experience of products. The UEQ is a semantic differential with 26 items. Filling out the UEQ takes approximately 3-5 minutes, i.e. the UEQ is already reasonably efficient concerning the time required to answer all items. However, there exist several valid application scenarios, where filling out the entire UEQ appears impractical. Therefore we created a 8 item short version of the UEQ, which is optimized for these specific application scenarios.
