What are 5 UX performance measures?


User experience (UX) performance measures are critical tools that help organisations evaluate how well they are meeting the needs and expectations of their users. These measures help identify improvement areas, track progress over time, and make informed decisions about resource allocation. In this blog article, we'll discuss five UX performance measures that organisations commonly use.


Usability measures how easily users can complete tasks within a product or system. It assesses the effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction of the user interface. Usability is typically evaluated through user testing, where users are asked to complete specific tasks, and their interactions with the product are observed and analyzed. Common usability metrics include task completion rate, time to complete tasks, and error rate.

User Engagement

User engagement measures how well the product or system engages users and keeps them interested and involved. This can be evaluated through user surveys, analytics data, and observation. Common user engagement metrics include the number of sessions or visits, time spent using the product, and the frequency of use.

Conversion Rate

Conversion rate measures the success of the product or system in achieving its intended goal, such as generating leads, making sales, or getting users to sign up for a service. It assesses the effectiveness of the user interface in driving user behaviour towards the desired outcome. Standard conversion rate metrics include click-through, sign-up, and purchase rates.


Accessibility measures how well the product or system is designed to be accessible to users with disabilities or impairments. This includes users who may have visual, auditory, or motor impairments or who may be using assistive technologies. Accessibility is evaluated through compliance with accessibility standards, user testing with disabled users, and accessibility audits. Common accessibility metrics include compliance with WCAG 2.1 standards, the error rate for assistive technology users, and time to complete tasks for users with disabilities.

Brand Perception

Brand perception measures users' perceptions of the organization's brand based on their interactions with the product or system. It assesses the user experience in relation to the organization's overall brand image, values, and messaging. Brand perception is evaluated through user surveys, focus groups, and social media monitoring. Common brand perception metrics include brand loyalty, recognition, and reputation.


UX performance measures are critical tools for organizations to evaluate their success in providing a positive user experience. Usability, user engagement, conversion rate, accessibility, and brand perception are just a few of the many types of UX performance measures that organizations use to evaluate their performance. By tracking these measures over time and making informed decisions based on the data, organizations can improve their overall UX and achieve their goals and objectives.
