Another Survey (Including Website Usability Scale Template)

Post from February 25, 2009 (↻ May 30, 2021), filed under .

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.

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead—currently manager for Developer Experience at LivePerson—and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. 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.
