Knowledge about how to conduct local and remote evaluations

Our experience in local evaluations has reached scientific and technical sectors. As regards remote evaluations, we have obtained good results with users who could master computer instruments autonomously. As regards the material available for testing and evaluation, we have appreciated that it was well structured; this aspect was of the utmost importance during the evaluation phase. Moreover, we had frequent contacts over the phone with our users. It is worth to be mentioned that usually tutorials and manuals intended for local evaluations are not carefully drafted, since the physical presence of a human guide can do for the lack of completeness; on the contrary, exhaustive and complete manuals were prepared for remote evaluation and they revealed to be very important instruments for introducing the users into the system.
