In our earlier article, Jim Lewis and I reviewed the published literature on labeling scales. Despite some recommendations and “best practice” wisdom, we didn’t find that fully labeled scales were measurably superior to partially labeled scales across the 17 published studies that we read. In reviewing the studies in more detail, we found many had confounding effects when comparing between full labeling and partial labeling—meaning

Each January millions of people make New Year’s resolutions. One of the most popular is to lose weight and stay in shape. Gyms get packed each January, then around Valentine’s Day the “resolutionary” crowds tend to fade away. It’s not easy to change habits but several websites try to help you build the right fitness habits throughout the year. It can be hard enough to

There’s a lot to do outside. Biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, boating, and driving an RV all fall under the umbrella of the outdoor recreation industry. Depending on how broadly it’s defined, it can be anywhere from a $10 billion to $800 billion industry. And all the gear needed for these outdoor activities can be bought in brick-and-mortar and online stores. For now, Amazon has yet

Around a quarter of Americans change jobs each year. For most, that job search happens online. Job related websites are a multibillion-dollar business with plenty of competition. They have made finding and applying for jobs more accessible and easier. However, the process isn’t without issues. Job descriptions can be misleading, and the application process can be cumbersome. To better understand the job searching user experience

What gets measured gets managed. It’s more than a truism for business executives. It’s also essential for the user experience professional. In business, and UX research in particular, you don’t want to bring focus to the wrong or flawed measure. It can lead to wrong decisions and a misalignment of effort. In an earlier article, I discussed the differences between the most common variables in

UX professionals use many methods to help understand and improve the user experience. Among the most popular are usability testing, expert reviews, surveys, and card sorting. But where did these methods come from? The field of UX research is relatively new, but its methods are not. And while UX methods may have new names, many of these methods are specialized adaptations of methods with roots

Online dating websites are one of the primary ways people find dates and even future spouses. These sites represent the bulk of a 3 billion dollar dating services industry. In fact, around 30% of recent marriages started online, but it’s not like finding a date is as easy as filtering choices on Amazon and having them delivered via drone the next day (not yet at

No one likes getting lost. In real life or digitally. One can get lost searching for a product to purchase, finding medical information, or clicking through a mobile app to post a social media status. Each link, button, and menu leads to decisions. And each decision can result in a mistake, leading to wasted time, frustration, and often the inability to accomplish tasks. But how

A usable product is a better product. But even the most usable product isn’t adequate if it doesn’t do what it needs to. Products, software, websites, and apps need to be both usable and useful for people to “accept” them, both in their personal and professional lives. That’s the idea behind the influential Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). Here are 10 things to know about the TAM.

Watching how people interact with an interface tells you a lot about what works and what needs improvement. And while observing behavior is essential for understanding the user experience, it’s not enough. Just because a product does what it should, is priced right, and is reliable, doesn’t mean it provides a good user experience. Users can think the experience is too complicated or difficult. For
