Evaluation by Group 7
(A) Group 7, The Morning Addition (B) Group 11, The Unknowns (C) (1)Topic Selection: 19 points This topic doesn't necessarily affect most of the population, but it was a topic that was highly in the news and most people know about it. It also related to organic chemistry well. (2)Newspaper and Article Selection: 8 points It was a very good article and it was very interesting. The problem was that it wasn't from a newspaper and it was too old for this assignment. (3)Quality of the Editorial Comments: 10 points The article was done wonderfully. It covered everything of importance from the article and added a little extra explanation. It was well organized and had good grammar and style. (4)Organic Chemistry Content: 10 points It had a few compounds and related to more than one chapter in the book. Medicines themselves have everything to do with chemistry. (5)Selection and Quality of the Links: 19 points The only problem was with putting the link for Medscape under the word valvulopathy because when you do a search with this word it doesn't work. You have to use valvular heart diseaese. Otherwise all the links were and worked great. (6)Format, Number, and Types of Questions: 8 points Two of the questions asked for the reader to perform generally the same task. A different form of question should have been asked. (7)Quality of the Questions: 10 points The questions were asked well and required some work and searching without taking too much time. They were simple enough and yet covered main issues that were important. The PSP question was very good. (8)Overall Impression: 9 points With just a little correction, this problem set would be perfect. It was done very well and it was extremely interesting. It is obvious that plenty of work went into this. Overall Score: 93 points Good Job!
