Evaluation by Group 30

(A) Auf Wiedersehen, Group 30

(B) Rau Group, Group 3

(1) Topic Selection: 20/20
This is a good choice as many students are concerned with silly beauty
stuffs like this.  It
really makes an impact.

(2) Newspaper and Article Selection: 10/10
Well, it's Canadian, but I guess we can forgive that.  Ha.  It's from a
good newspaper and
recent enough.

(3) Quality of the Editorial Comments: 10/10
The editorial really expands on the article and is written well.  Wow.

(4) Organic Chemistry Content: 10/10
The biological reactions are explained, and chemical info given.

(5) Selection and Quality of the Links: 20/20
They have tons of good links, to interesting sites.

(6) Format, Number and Types of Questions: 10/10
The questions were formatted perfectly.

(7) Quality of the Questions: 9/10
The first four questions weren't very diverse in nature, but they were
good anyway.

(8) Overall Impression. 10/10
It looked good.  What else can we say.  This is a darned good article and
we would publish it.

Total: 99/100


Evaluation by Group 31

 Group 3

  Topic Selection:  20--good topic, relevant to college students
  Newspaper and Article selection:  9--good article with reputable
sources, but the newspaper itself is a bit obscure
  Quality of editorial comments:  8--the comments are a bit lengthy and
get off the point somewhat.  The actual discussion of the article is quite
good, though.
  Organic Chemistry content:  8--the article is great for organic content,
but the comments don't contribute much to our understanding, instead they
just reiterate the same points.
  Selection and quality of links:  17--some of the links were really good,
but then a few were too general (86 links to skin cancer?).  The make-up
company links were pretty worthless.  You went a little overboard with the
  Format, #, type of question:  10--fits the requirements
  Quality of questions:  9--the questions require little thought
  Overall impression:  8--you obviously worked really hard on the project,
but maybe a little too much.  Trim down the comments and the number of
links and the project will be great.

(C) Responses to Various Evaluation Categories

(1) Topic Selection: 20 Points (0-20)
The topic is relevant to our age group.  

(2) Newspaper and Article Selection: 9 Points (0-10)
The article was well written, easy to follow, and very informative.  It
was a little lengthy and took a while to get to the point.  WeĠre not too
sure about the source either.

(3) Quality of the Editorial Comments: 9 Points (0-10)
It was too long.  We didnĠt get the organic relevance until late in the

(4) Organic Chemistry Content: 8 Points (0-10)
There should have been more focus on the organic molecules within the

(5) Selection and Quality of the Links: 17 Points (0-20)
Some of the links were very repetitive, and there could have been more of
a connection to chemistry within the links.  One of the links was also not

(6) Format, Number and Types of Questions: 9 Points (0-10)
The required number of questions was fulfilled, but the PSP question could
have been more open-ended.  

(7) Quality of the Questions: 8 Points (0-10)
Question 2 threw us.  We could not find the word mentioned in the link,
and there was no way to find the answer.  Possible misspelling?

(8) Overall Impression: 9 Points (0-10)
The group put a lot of work into this project, but there should be some
minor adjustments.  Overall, it was well done.
