2DES Become our friend to view this Tool/Method
Participants in tests or experiments have to continuously rate the emotion expressed by a stimulus using this computer program. 2DES lets the participants report the emotion perceived by moving the mouse in a space defined by the two bipolar dimensions valence and arousal. Both dimensions are labelled by little
pictograms representing a human face (smiling of frowning for valence, with eyes

PrEmo Become our friend to view this Tool/Method
PrEmo is a non-verbal self-report instrument that measures 14 emotions that are often elicited by product design. The unique strength of PrEmo is that it combines two qualities: it measures distinct emotions and it can be used cross-culturally because it does not ask respondents to verbalize their emotions. In addition, it can be used to measure mixed emotions. PrEmo data can be useful for evaluating the emotional impact of existing designs...

arousal and dominance). Each scale consists of five figures. For example, the valence scales goes from a smiling character to a frowning character. Participants
can select one of these figures or place a cross between two characters, which results in a 9-point...

The Geneva Emotion Wheel (GEW) is a theoretically derived and empirically tested
instrument to measure emotional reactions to objects, events, and situations. The
respondent is asked to indicate the emotion he/she experienced by choosing intensities for a single emotion or a blend of several emotions out of 20 distinct emotion families. The emotion families are arranged in a wheel shape with the axes being defined by two major...

Test participants are filmed while interacting with a product. Immediately afterwards they watch this video and can report about their feelings during the interaction. Ratings can be collected at predefined points in time (fixed interval, after completion of a task, etc.), when the participants want to report their feelings or when psychophysiological data (skin conductance, cardiac function and possibly facial EMG) indicate a change in...
FaceReader Become our friend to view this Tool/Method
FaceReader constructs a model of the face from the video and automatically evaluate several elementary facial movements (action units). Based on these movements it calculates the likeliness that each of six basic emotions (joy, anger, sadness, surprise, fear and disgust) is felt at any given time. Tests from the provider of the software indicate a success rate of up to 90% with frontal face images.

They can move a cursor in a space defined by two dimensions, activation (from very passive to very active) and evaluation (from very negative to very positive). Additionally, a circle materializes the “circumplex” on which all affective states are located in this space according the dimensional theory of Russell (1980). Words...
