Standardized Questionnaires for HCI Research

Find it time-consuming to find or create standardized questionnaires in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) for your research? This project collects popular HCI surveys and provides them in copyable Google Forms or external links. Grab the ones you need and speed up your research ⚡️ ⚡️ ⚡️.

Quick Links for Templates

*Make sure you've read the questionnaire explanation below before copying the form. Using a wrong template could lead to a waste of effort and false conclusions!

AttrakDiff FSS GEQ IPQ PQ Raw NASA-TLX SAM SSQ SUS (Presence) SUS_Usability UEQ UEQ-S



  • Copy AttrakDiff: measuring the attractiveness [Hassenzahl et al. 2003]. Attrakdiff3 is used here.

  • Copy GEQ - Game Experience Questionnaire: [Poels et al. 2007]. Note there are different versions of GEQ exist and the factor structure of the GEQ might not be stable [Law et al. 2018]--please be cautious when applying it. We used the original version with 42 items here.

  • Link FSS - Flow Short State: measuring the flow-inducing aspects of the gameplay. The longer form (Flow State Scale) can be found in this work [Jackson and Marsh, 1996]

  • Copy IPQ - Igroup Presence Questionnaire: measuring the sense of presence experienced in a virtual environment [Schubert et al. 2001]. The questionnaire follows this webpage.

  • Copy PQ - Presence Questionnaire: measuring the degree to which individuals experience presence in a virtual environment [Witmer 1998].

  • Copy Raw NASA-TLX - Raw Task Load Index: measuring subjective workload [Hart and Staveland 1988]. This template is a short version of NASA-TLX [Hart 2006] on Likert 7-point scale.

  • Copy SAM - Self-Assessment Manikin questionnaire: measuring emotion [Bradley 1994]. This version is used here.

  • Copy SSQ - Simulator Sickness Questionnaire: measuring simulator sickness and cybersickness [Kennedy et al. 1993].

  • Copy SUS (Presence) - Slater-Usoh-Steed questionnaire: measuring presence in a virtual environment [Usoh et al. 2000].

  • Copy SUS (Usability) - System Usability Scale: measuring system usability [Brooke 1996].

  • Copy UEQ - User Experience Questionnaire: measuring the user experience of interactive products [Laugwitz 2008].

  • Copy UEQ-S - User Experience Questionnaire-Short: the shorter version of UEQ [Schrepp et al. 2017]. The authors have also made an online version here.

There are many other standardized surveys in HCI and it will be very nice to include more of them here. Please help us to improve the project by either

  • Pose a new issue on GitHub and provide external links of the questionnaire(s); or
  • Create and share your own questionnaire templates in Google Forms by following these steps and pull a new request to this project.
