1)    Topic Selection
18 points - Relevant to the safekeeping of national monuments, but not 
quite focused.

5 points - Interesting article, but it seemed to have very little to do 
with organic chemistry, it did not seem to have any reference to chemistry 
at all.
 
3)    Quality of the Editorial Comments
9 points - Concise, relevant, and interesting.
 
4)    Organic Chemistry Content
10 points - Organic chemistry issue made clear, with sufficient background 
material.

16 points - Some good links, but others didn't seem to have much to do 
with the topic of the article.  One link didn't work.  Links to periodic

Evaluation by Group 3

A) Group 3 : 4-OC-Studs
B) Group 5: Carbon Conquerors
C)
1) Topic Selection : 18 / 20
The topic seems to be chemically related, but the organic chemistry 
relevance is brief.
2) Newspaper and Article Selection: 5 / 10
The source was questionable and seemed more tourist oriented than 
chemistry oriented.
3) Quality of the Editorial Comments: 9 / 10
The comments were too short and too vague on key issues.
4) Organic Chemistry Content: 6 / 10
The article was intresting historically, but did not relate well to 
organic chemistry.  In addition, the editorial comments highlights key 
issues not present in the article.  There should be more expansion on 
related areas.
5) Selection and Quality of Links: 19 / 20
Links worked well and held relevance to the topic.
6) Format, Number and Types of Questions: 8 / 10
Question 5?
7) Quality of the Questions: 9 / 10
Answer for question 2 appears unfinished, but the rest were appropriate.
8) Overall Impression: 8 / 10
Intresting, but not impressive.
