Abstract: This contribution is concerned with the role of evaluation in design research with respect to the twin goals of informing the external scientific community about any new knowledge attained as well as driving the development of an effective intervention. This kind of evaluation is conscious, systematic, and formalized. Here, the term, evaluation, is used in a broad sense to refer to any kind of empirical testing of interventions that have been mapped out (designs) or constructed (prototypes). Reflection pertains to retrospective consideration of findings and observations rather than to assessment of personal performance. In this contribution, evaluation is described as a series of 10 steps, starting with establishing a focus and concluding with reporting. Thereafter, the role of reflection and processes that support it are addressed.
