Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) is heralded to be a promising technology for education. Thus, it is important to properly evaluate it so practitioners feel more confident in its use. Considering the current lack of studies to evaluate AR based educational technology, this work aims to provide some guidelines in order to assist researchers when conducting educational evaluations. The proposed principles were based on both theoretical and practical research. The guidelines presented involve the use of multiple metrics, both quantitative and qualitative, high involvement of teachers and a comprehensive evaluation taking into account both formative and summative aspects. Two practical evaluation experiences were designed applying these principles and their findings are discussed in this paper.
