Usability evaluation(UE) experiments are conducted to provide UE practitioners with guidelines for better outcomes. In UE research, significant quantities of empirical results have been accumulated in the past decades. While those results have been anticipated to integrate for producing generalized guidelines, traditional meta-analysis has limitations to combine UE empirical results that often show considerable heterogeneity. In this study, a new data mining method called weighted bi-clustering(WBC) was proposed to partition heterogeneous studies into homogeneous subsets. We applied the WBC to UE empirical results and identified two homogeneous subsets, each of which can be meta-analyzed. In addition, interactions between experimental conditions and UE methods were hypothesized based on the resulting partition and some interactions were confirmed via statistical tests.
