    Abstract

    In general, the concept of usability can not be measured but it is related to several usability metrics that can be measured. Focusing on the efficiency factor, this present paper aims to formulate the behaviorness metrics and furthermore giving an overview on how to measure the behaviorness of the product. The model for measuring the usability has been developed in terms to determine the elements in measuring the behaviorness of the software. As adopted from the model, two attributes in measuring the behaviorness of the software: Display Preference and Usage Frequency were claimed to be associated with measuring the Behaviorness of the software applications. These attributes and the metrics used in measuring the behaviorness as well as the formula for measuring the behaviorness of the software applications are also discussed.
