We propose here a contextual evaluation method. The difficulty of this kind of evaluation comes from the complexity of the real situation to which it applies : the procedure being contextual, it is practiced on the situation, in real time and not in condition of laboratory where one observes some critical factors by neglecting others and often the finality of the task. Consequently, we have sought to understand the context of each computer mediated training systems situation. Methods that we propose are based on a quantification of results of the work in order to evaluate performance reached by the, analysis of communication types used during each activity to resolve the task in order to evaluate the behavior of actors and the behavior of the socio-technical system, and questionnaires on the perception and the usage of the different items of the environment in order to evaluate the satisfaction of actors.
