Abstract

We present an innovative dynamic visual interface, the MoodStripe, which provides a continuous-scale, multi-parameter drag-and-drop alternative to the standard \textit{n}-degree (Likert) scale widgets, commonly used in online evaluation processes. We elaborate on the motivation for the development of the new user input interfaces, and present the results of cross evaluation of the GMail product by using the SUS questionnaire with the standard and the proposed MoodStripe interfaces. The overall goal is to design a more intuitive interface, by reducing the noise and task load inherent in traditional interfaces for standardized user-feedback gathering tests. The results show the MoodStripe interface outperforms the standard scale approach both in terms of intuitiveness and functionality. Additionally, the cross-evaluation of the both approaches shows comparable SUS scores.
