Eye tracking as a hands -free input method can be a significant addition to the lives of people with a motor disability. With this motivation in mind, so far research in eye -controlled interaction has focused on several aspects of interpreting eye tracking as input for pointing, typing, and interaction methods with interfaces. In this chapter, we review and elaborate different evaluation methods used in gaze interaction research, so the readers can inform themselves of the procedure and metrics to assess their novel gaze interaction method or interface.
