This article provides an overview of recent research on how to evaluate online learning communities, emphasizing the theoretical and applied constructs of an effective online learning community that underlie evaluation efforts. Representative studies are selected and categorized according to a conceptual framework for evaluating online learning community. This framework delineates different measurement purposes, measures, methods, data, and theoretical perspectives. Based on the proposed framework and issues extracted from the literature review, suggestions and guidelines governing the evaluation of an online learning community will also be provided as the conclusion. This article should serve as a useful guide for new and inexperienced online education practitioners.
