The study that investigated the effects of interface design element on students from different ethnic groups focuses on the effects of colours and graphics on the users (students). The analyses suggest that despite no relationship between the colours and the ethnic values. There is a little or almost no evidence showing the relationships between the usability attributes and the student’s belief in colours that reflect their ethnic culture, the data yields five outcomes.

  1. The colour that does not affect the cultural values does not affect their learning task.
  2. The colours that affect the personal and emotional values do not affect the learning task.
  3. The learning task can be affected by the students’ favourite colours in its relationship to their ethnical, cultural values.
  4. The relationship can be seen between colours and personal values and
  5. The relationship can be seen between colours and emotional values.
