    Summary
    In the last years, Instructional Design has seen the development of visual models for supporting and enhancing the design process. A part of them concern the definition of learning goals, while others address the definition of learning activities or learning materials. These tools supposedly reduce the cognitive load and enhance design communication. Few contributions try to assess the impact that such models have on the practice of Instructional Design. This paper first provides a general framework for the evaluation, indicating key issues and providing guidelines for the design of an evaluation program; then presents an implementation of the framework along with the data collected about E2ML, a novel visual design language.
