A tangible audio-visual interface based on the metaphor of balancing a ball on a tiltable track allows the measurement of human control movements under different conditions of sensory feedback. This specific scenario of human-system interaction forms an example for the definition of various measures of performance and quality of interaction. The dependence of these measures on specific configurations of the interface with regard to the employed audio-visual feedback, and their relationship is discussed.
