A Technology Enhanced Interaction Framework has been developed to support designers and developers designing and developing technology enhanced interactions for complex scenarios involving disabled people. A literature review showed that while there have been many studies concerned with methods for evaluating software designs few studies addressed ways to evaluate software design methods. Issues of motivation, time, and understanding when validating and evaluating the Technology Enhanced Interaction framework were identified through a literature review and questionnaires and interviews with experts. The advantages and disadvantages of a range of experimental design approaches to sourcing scenarios, gathering requirements and designing solutions were considered. Future work will consist of the implementation of a motivating user evaluation approach involving both self-evaluations by designers and expert evaluations that learns the lessons from others’ experiences of software method evaluations.
