Tamar Ben-Bassat, Joachim Meyer, Noam Tractinsky
2006 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
We suggest that other evaluation methods, including economic measures, may provide different estimates of the relative value of features.  ...  Similarly, the systems' aesthetics affected evaluations of both aesthetics and usability.  ...  The main objective of this study is to demonstrate the use of an economic mechanism-the auction-to assess the subjective value of design attributes.  ...

The influence of socio-cultural background and product value in usability testing

Andreas Sonderegger, Juergen Sauer
2013 Applied Ergonomics  
Sixty-four test participants were asked to carry out five typical user tasks in the context of coffee machine usage, measuring performance, perceived usability, and emotion.  ...  Implications are that the outcomes of usability tests do not allow for a simple transfer across cultures and that the mediating influence of perceived product value needs to be taken into consideration  ...  Acknowledgement We are very grateful to Nicole Aebischer and Carola Binder for their support in completing this study.  ...
