7 Participant/Team ID# WEBSITE DESIGN 2014 & 2015 OFFICIAL RATING FORM MIDDLE SCHOOL CRITERIA Website Development (100 points) Minimal performance Adequate performance Exemplary performance 1-4 points 5-8 points 9-10 points Evaluators: Using minimal (1-4 points), adequate (5-8 points) or exemplary (9-10 points) performance levels as a guideline, record the scores earned for the event criteria in the column spaces to the far right. The X1 or X2 notation in the criteria column is a multiplier factor for determining the points earned. (Example: an adequate score of 7 for an X1 criterion = 7 points; an adequate score of 7 for an X2 criterion = 14 points.) Content Layout Graphics Navigation Color scheme Interest Spelling and grammar Design research brief Several inaccuracies occur in the content provided by students, and/ or many requirements have not been met; not enough content is included, or content is very incomplete. Web pages are cluttered looking or confusing; it is often difficult to locate important elements. Graphics seem randomly chosen and are of low quality, and/or they distract the reader; many images are broken. Some links do not take the reader to the sites described; a user typically feels lost. Colors, fonts, and unvisited and visited links make the content hard to read or otherwise distract the reader. Participants have provided only the minimum amount of information and have not transformed the information to make it more interesting to the audience. There are many spelling and/or grammatical errors in the entire site. Website is lacking an adequate research base, and/or very few credible sources are referenced. Almost all information provided on the website by students is accurate, and most requirements of the assignment have been met, and/or all information is accurate and generally complete. Web pages have an attractive and usable layout; it is easy to locate all important elements. Graphics are related to the theme/ purpose of the site, are of good quality, and enhance reader interest or understanding; there are few or no broken images. Links for navigation are adequately labeled; they allow the reader to easily move from one page to related pages (forward and back), and the internal links take the reader where s/he expects to go; a user rarely becomes lost. Colors, fonts, and unvisited and visited links do not detract from the content and are consistent across pages. Participants have tried to make the content of the website interesting to the people for whom it is intended. There are a few spelling and/or grammatical errors in the entire site. Research has been conducted appropriately, with mostly credible sources. All information provided by students on the website is accurate and all the requirements of the assignment have been met; i.e., there is sufficient content in the website to learn about the topic and complete a research assignment. Website has an exceptionally attractive and usable layout. It is easy to locate all important elements; white space, graphic elements and/or alignment are used effectively to organize material. Graphics are related to the theme/purpose of the site, are thoughtfully cropped, are of high quality, and they enhance reader interest or understanding; there are no broken images. Links for navigation are clearly labeled, consistently placed and allow the reader to easily move from one page to related pages (forward and back); internal links take the reader where s/he expects to go; a user does not become lost. Colors, fonts, and unvisited and visited links form a pleasing palette, complement the content, and are consistent across pages Participants have made an exceptional attempt to ensure that the content of the website is interesting to the people for whom it is intended. There are either no, or very minor, spelling or grammatical errors in the entire site. A comprehensive research base that includes credible sources is evident. Record scores in the column spaces below. 335

8 CRITERIA Solution to design brief (X2) WEBSITE DESIGN (continued) Website Development (100 points) Minimal performance Adequate performance Exemplary performance 1-4 points 5-8 points 9-10 points Website is missing three (3) or more criteria and/or constraints of the design brief. Website is missing one (1) or two (2) criteria and/or constraints of the design brief. Website is missing no components of the design brief. SUBTOTAL (100 points) Rules violations (a deduction of 20% of the total possible points) must be initialed by the evaluator, coordinator and manager of the event. Record the deduction in the space to the far right. Indicate the rule violated: Semifinalist Interview (50 points) Articulation Knowledge (X2) Delivery CRITERIA Team participation Minimal performance Adequate performance Exemplary performance 1-4 points 5-8 points 9-10 points Participants are verbose and illogical in their interview responses, with the use of many "uhs, ums, hmms," etc. Participants seem to have very little understanding of the concepts in their project; interview answers are vague. Delivery detracts from the message; eye contact may be very limited; presenter may tend to look at the floor, mumble, speak inaudibly, fidget, or read a script; gestures and movements may be jerky or excessive. Only one (1) participant from the team communicates with evaluators. Participants are logical and well-spoken in their interview responses, with few "uhs, ums, hmms," etc. Team members have a generalized understanding of the concepts discussed and answer questions well. Delivery generally seems effective, with mostly consistent, volume, eye contact, vocal control; some hesitancy may be observed, however; vocal tone, facial expressions, and/or other nonverbal expressions do not detract from the message. Participants appear to be involved equally, and generally understand the concepts. Participants are well spoken, distinct, and clear in their interview responses with no, or very few, "uhs, ums, hmms," etc. Participants have a thorough understanding of the concepts discussed, and they are fully aware of the issues and the future. Delivery is extemporaneous, natural and enhances the message; posture, eye contact, gestures, facial expressions, volume, pace, etc., indicate confidence, a commitment to the topic, and a willingness to communicate. Participants fully understand the concepts of the event and are involved equally in the interview. SUBTOTAL (50 points) Rules violations (a deduction of 20% of the total possible points) must be initialed by the evaluator, coordinator and manager of the event. Record the deduction in the space to the far right. Indicate the rule violated: (To arrive at TOTAL score, add any subtotals and subtract rules violation points, as necessary. Check your math twice!) TOTAL (150 points) Comments: Evaluator I certify these results to be true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. Printed name: Signature: 336
