A Framework for the Evaluation of Pervasive Information Systems



Jean C. Scholtz, Mary F. Theofanos, Sunny Consolvo


In this chapter we present a framework of areas of evaluation for pervasive information systems along with metrics and examples from the literature. We review a number of methodologies that have been used in evaluation. A case study of an evaluation using a number of the evaluation areas in the framework is also given. We conclude with a discussion of future needs to enable researchers to share evaluation results.
