Portuguese Abstract: The main goal of this paper is to perform an analysis of Educational Robotics software environments. For that, a simple, practical and reproducible approach for assessment named EducAval is introduced. The key contribution is the proposal of some homogeneous and universal criteria for software evaluation in this area. Basically, simple assessment steps are followed including survey application and data collection and analysis, with specific questions about didactic and technical issues that are formulated separately for professors and students. After questionnaire application, data are collected and mapped into verification, qualification, and validation parameters. This strategy makes it simpler to evaluate Educational Robotics tools, thus verifying if they attend the requirements of the users and if they can be used as well by schools or other institutions interested in the application of such methodology. The software environments used in the finals of Brazilian Robotics Olympiad have been verified, qualified, and validated using this methodology and the results are presented
