How to Create a UMUX (Usability Metric for User Experience) Survey

 

UMUX allows you to measure the general usability of a system, website, or app. It consists of 4 statements for users to rate on a Likert scale. 

 

However, it doesn’t measure specific characteristics like usefulness or accessibility nor identify navigation issues, bottlenecks, or problems with particular elements of an interface.

 

UMUX  surveys are helpful in

 

  • Collect real-time customer feedback on the user experience of your website, app, or product.

  • Gain first-hand impressions of users on new features.

 

Here is how the UMUX survey looks on your website:

Recommended Targeting Options

 

1. Where should this survey appear?:

 

  • Behind the login wall after a user has completed a specific task or has gone through a customer support experience.

  • Type in the URL (simple or advanced) where you expect the experience to conclude naturally.  

 

2. Who should be prompted to take this survey?: 

 

  • Select 100% of all visitors who meet the conditions specified below

  • “Came directly to your site (typed in your URL or bookmark)” + “Only returning visitors.” 

 

3. When should this survey be displayed?: 

 

  • After the returning users have logged in.

 

NOTE! Displaying a Nudge very quickly to first-time visitors or users can disrupt their first impression of the user experience.

 

  • If you have pages set up for the end of a particular path like thank you (for purchasing, downloading, subscribing) screens or success pages designated for a specific experience, you might also select “immediately after the page loads.”

 

4. How often should this survey be displayed?: 

 

  • Select “Continue showing until a visitor provides a response.”

 

How to Calculate the UMUX Score

 

In your UMUX Score, odd items are scored as [user score - 1], and even items are scored as [7 - user score].

 

Step 1: Add these differences and divide the sum by 24 (the highest possible score). 

 

Step 2: Multiply your quotient by 100.

 

Step 3: Average your results among users.

 

If you’re using a 5-point Likert scale, you will only have to make a few adjustments to the steps above. Even items should be scored as [5 - user score], and you’ll have to divide the sum by 16 instead of 24. 

 

For UMUX-Lite Scoring [7-point scale] 

 

The Items are scored by subtracting one from the user response: [user score - 1] 

 

Step 1: Add the two adjusted scores and divide the sum by 12 (the highest possible score). 

 

Step 2: Multiply your quotient by 100. 

 

Step 3: Average your results among users.  

 

If you’re using a 5-point Likert scale, you only have to make one change to the steps above: divide the sum by 8 instead of 12.

 

That is all about using the UMUX survey.
