Meaningful Measurement of Effect and Value of the Technology

Consistent and reliable instruments that measure the effect of the technology are still lacking. In many cases studies, if conducted, do not measure the effect on learning or demonstrate the benefits of using the XR technology versus traditional methods or alternative means/technologies. This makes it difficult to have a clear case for the use of the technology, when it is most appropriate and to make comparisons.

Define the barrier if it has not been defined yet OR expand on the current definition if you believe that is necessary. Learner-, context-, and/or situation-specific conditions may be relevant here.

Illuminate any concrete examples of the barrier in action.

Pinpoint the technical limitations involved, if applicable.

Imagine potential solutions to knock down the barrier.

Scan any relevant literature you are aware of that relates to the barrier; what are the most pressing overall themes you observe from the literature? (Share any direct URLs.)

Ask any questions that are critical for addressing in order to knock down the barrier.
