Traditionally, skills training has always been conducted in the physical classroom with face to face interaction of resources and equipment, facilitators and students. However, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, many educational institutions are forced to conduct training online due to lockdowns. While lecture and tutorial delivery can be easily converted to online virtual format, the greatest challenge is for better student engagement and visualisation of resources during online learning. To tackle these challenges, augmented reality (AR) seems to be a promising technology to simulate physical learning resources objects, especially in authentic learning. While there has been extensive use of such virtual AR objects during the present COVID 19 pandemic, the technology needs to be evaluated thoroughly to prove it’s viability and effectiveness in student engagement and learning impact.

Objective:
The objective of this study was to determine common evaluation tools used for assessing the effectiveness and impact of AR applications.

Methodology:
In this paper, we review studies that have conducted an evaluation of different AR applications and their assessment methods.

Results and Discussion:
Studies have assessed AR applications through many innovative ways and proved that AR educational applications have improved students’ cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains, depending on how AR is applied in teaching. Further studies are required to determine the best and most universal method capable of assessing all AR applications for education.
