    Based upon a review of the literature, this paper presents a Method Impact Assessment Framework. Theoretically synthesized, the framework offers five dimensions: (1) the role of the child, (2) the user experience construct, (3) system, (4) epistemological perspective, (5) Practical and Ethical Concerns. Although other dimensions could have been construed, these were judged to be the most pertinent to understanding evaluation methods with children. The framework thus provides a critical lens in which evaluation methods can be assessed by the Children Computer Interaction (CCI) Community to inform method selection.
