Another Survey (Including Website Usability Scale Template)

Published on February 25, 2009 (↻ October 19, 2022), filed under (RSS feed for all categories).

I’m doing it again: Do you have another 15 seconds to answer a couple of questions?

Survey: How usable is meiert.com?

The survey is based on the System Usability Scale (SUS) John Brooke presented in the 80s, which means nothing less than that there’s another experiment taking place with me testing SUS on this site.

Despite the fact that I may not be able to share the findings (whether they are actually useful) I may, however, share the templates for the survey, one saying “system,” the other saying “website”:

Google Docs should give you the option to copy the spreadsheets and create a form similar to the one I created.

Was this useful or interesting? Share (toot) this post, or maybe treat me to a coffee. Thanks!

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens (long: Jens Oliver Meiert), and I’m a frontend engineering leader and tech author/publisher. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google and as an engineering manager for companies like Miro, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma.

I love trying things, not only in web development (and engineering management), but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you want to do me a favor, interpret charitably (I speak three languages, and they can collide), yet be critical and give feedback for me to learn and improve. Thank you!

    Do you have a template for calculating the scores?

    Elizabeth, the total score’s now getting calculated, too (see “Sheet2” in each spreadsheet).

    Jens -

    Do you know where I could find the SUS questions in French, Dutch and German?
    My client uses English as an office language, but I think the Likert-style questions might confuse people for whom English is their second language.
