MAR approaches have been applied as an instructional strategy in educational contexts. In this respect, it is important to identify how these approaches have been developed and evaluated with the purpose to identify their quality and benefits. The goal of this article is to identify the state-of-the-art on how the MAR has been used for educational purposes. Therefore, we performed a systematic literature review with a sample of 57 articles. Based on the selected studies, we analysed which knowledge areas the MAR approaches are used in the educational contexts. We also analysed how the approaches have been developed, and evaluated. As a result, we identify that the technical requirements used in the development of the MAR approaches are defined based on the expertise of the development team. Most evaluations are carried out without an appropriate scientific rigor in terms of research design. This shows that there is a need of more consistent and uniform patterns in terms of methods for systematically develop and evaluation of MAR approaches. And, thus, obtain valid results that can be used as a basis for a decision on the application of such approaches and/or their continuous improvement for the educational purposes.
