WebQuest Evaluation

  1. 1. Lisa QuraishCIMT 543Spring 2012Dr. Ziaeehezarjeribi WebQuest Evaluation“Use Rubric for Evaluating WebQuests Table 8.4, Roblyer and Doering (2010, pp. 254-255) to evaluate this websitehttp://questgarden.com/80/56/4/090414191926/.Post a completed version of the rubric and written observations on the Discussion Board. Remember to back up your claims withquotes from the textbook.”Completed Rubric Evaluating http://questgarden.com/80/56/4/090414191926/ Beginning Developing Accomplished ScoreOverall AestheticsOverall Visual 0 pts 2pts 4pts 2pts – There are a number of graphic elements used related to theAppeal concept. Poor choice of color scheme. The red of the text clashes with the maroon background, as does the mustard colored title and beige backgrounds and navigation links. According to Smaldino, Lowther, and Russell (2012) it is helpful to think “in terms of a background color, a color for the images or text appearing against that background, and a color for highlights.” This site has too many colors and they are not all compatible. The text is also rather small for extensive on screen reading.Navigation and 0 pts 2pts 4pts 2pts –Navigation is seamless, however, the instructions at the veryFlow bottom of the “Process” page are necessary prior to beginning research, so should be placed elsewhere, either before listing the research links or in a separate tab. Also, links to outside resources should open to new tabs so that the WebQuest can remain open. 1
  2. 2. Lisa QuraishCIMT 543Spring 2012Dr. ZiaeehezarjeribiMechanical 0 pts 1pt 2pts 0pts – There are 13 broken links and/or videos unavailable, andAspects one link that leads to the wrong page (a poem that has previously been linked to).IntroductionMotivational 0 pts 1pt 2pts 2pts – The introduction draws the reader into the lesson byEffectiveness of outlining an interesting and creative project that students willIntroduction enjoy completing. The first paragraph should be moved to the teacher page or to its own “Objectives” tab.Cognitive 0 pts 1pt 2pts 2 pts – The Introduction effectively prepares the learner for theEffectiveness of lesson.IntroductionTaskConnection of 0 pts 2pts 4pts 4pts – The standards align very well with the student tasks.Task toStandardsCognitive Level 0 pts 3pts 6pts 6pts – This project requires students to research, collaborate,of Tasks select, justify, create, and present. This project requires going beyond the data given to make a creative product.ProcessClarity of 0 pts 2pts 4pts 1pts – Information essential to beginning the Process step is listedProcess at the bottom of the “Process” page. Students need to be able to work as they read through the page from top to bottom. They shouldn’t have to scroll up and down. Also, since the hyperlinks take you to a page within the same screen/tab, students have to continually push backspace or remember to right click “open link 2
  3. 3. Lisa QuraishCIMT 543Spring 2012Dr. Ziaeehezarjeribi in a new tab.” Teacher is needed to clarify when to do which step in the process, so not a fully stand-alone lesson.Scaffolding of 0 pts 3pts 6pts 6pts – The process allows students with no, little, or extensiveProcess background knowledge to benefit from the same task/assignment. Activities promote higher level thinking.Richness of 0 pts 1pt 2pts 2 pts – Students have more than one role themselves in theProcess completion of this assignment and also have roles that differ amongst students so that collaboration and learning from one another can take place.ResourcesRelevance and 0 pts 2pts 4pts 4 pts – The resources have been chosen well and give a goodQuantity of number of options to each assigned art expert. (Many linksResources currently not working, see “Mechanical Aspects”).Quality of 0 pts 2pts 4pts 4 pts – Working links are of high quality and lend much support toResources the lesson. Please address broken links and unavailable videos.EvaluationClarity of 0 pts 3pts 6pts 6 pts – A clear evaluation rubric with a rating scale based on levelEvaluation of performance descriptors (Smaldino, et al., 2012) is easilyCriteria located under the “Evaluation tab.” The rubric is not generic, but is assignment specific and easy for students to follow and judge their work against. Total Score 41/50 3
