How do you measure trust?

Watch Ling and Nicole’s talk from UXRConf 2019 on how they mixed methods to create a survey tool for measuring consumer trust in Groupon’s online ratings and reviews.

Measuring Trust When Conversion Isn't Enough

Measuring Trust When Conversion Isn’t Enough by Ling Hu, User Experience Researcher @ Facebook and Nicole Hill, Lead User Experience Researcher @ Groupon

What’s it about? Groupon recognized the importance of customers’ trust, and they needed a way to measure their success. While many qualitative UX research methods exist, none allowed the teams to robustly and precisely measure changes in users’ attitudes, emotions and perceptions as they pertain to consumer trust.

In this talk, Ling and Nicole show how they mixed qualitative UX research with the field of psychometric scale development to create a survey tool for measuring consumer trust in Groupon’s online ratings and reviews. They will introduce this powerful approach, explain the scale creation process and discuss some of the challenges and lessons learned when undertaking such an endeavour.
