Abstract

A usability assessment is now widely recognized as critical to the success of interactive interface design including web design. In this paper, our research team used a variety of different biosignals such as Electroencephalogram (EEG), Electrocardiogram (ECG), and Electromyogram (EMG) to evaluate individuals’ emotional reactions to different web interface designs. At the same time, we conducted typical usability testing of the same web interface design to compare the results of these two methods, and conclude whether usability testing using biosignals is a good method to use for web evaluation.

A Comparison and Analysis of Usability Methods for Web Evaluation: The Relationship Between Typical Usability Test and Bio-Signals Characteristics (EEG, ECG)

A usability assessment is now widely recognized as critical to the success of interactive interface design including web design. In this paper, our research team used a variety of different biosignals such as Electroencephalogram (EEG), Electrocardiogram (ECG), and Electromyogram (EMG) to evaluate individuals’ emotional reactions to different web interface designs.
