Is there a universal instrument for measuring interactive information retrieval?

Heather L. O'Brien, Elaine G. Toms
2010 Proceeding of the third symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '10  
The findings discuss the feasibility of a universal measure of user engagement in Interactive Information Retrieval (IIR).  ...  This paper examines the validity of the User Engagement Scale (UES).  ...  It is not practical to develop a new measure of engagement for every IIR system/interaction.  ...
