In order to guide, measure and record progress in BCSS's a framework which outlines relevant aspects and methods by which they may be measured must be agreed. In this paper we introduce relevant criteria from argumentation: argument mode, initial position, belief entrenchment and incremental persuasion and show how these apply to a real world example of behaviour change. We finish by proposing a preliminary evaluation matrix which places our new criteria into context with existing criteria. This has three dimensions: (i) the type of persuasion, (ii) the person being persuaded and (iii) the type of evaluation.
