School: …………………………………. 7. Start time: ……………………………….. 4. Teacher: ……………………………….. 8. End time: ………………………………... 9.1. Settings: □ classroom □ lab □ media center □other: ……………………... 9.2. No. students____ 9.3. No. computers_____ 10. The degree of applicability of criteria on the software ( 1 = very applicable ), ( 2 = applicable ), ( 3 = unobservable ), ( 4 = not applicable ), ( 5 = not applicable at all) No. Criteria Degree Comment 11. Motivation and Interactivity: 11.1 Approach is appropriate for the intended student population. 0 1 2 3 4 5 11.2 Format is varied. 0 1 2 3 4 5 11.3 Overall tenor of interaction is helpful. 0 1 2 3 4 5 11.4 Student is an active participant in the learning process. 0 1 2 3 4 5 11.5 Graphics and audio are used to motivate. 0 1 2 3 4 5 11.6 Graphics help focus attention to appropriate content without 0 1 2 3 4 5 being distracting.
