synthetic metric

a value which is the result of combining other metrics, which are measurements of properties of designs, systems, or user performance. An example is to average the results of several subjective ratings scores that come from users responding to an interface, i.e. if we asked users to rate on a scale of 1 (bad) to 10 (good) the attractiveness, interest, and ease of an interface, we could average these 3 scores and treat the average as an estimate of their overall subjective reaction (which may or may not be a useful metric).
