Step 6 : Evaluation

6.1 Judge your product (how effective were you)

Before turning in your assignment, compare it to the requirements that your teacher gave you.

  • Did you do everything and include all that was required for the assignment?
  • Did you give credit to all of your sources, written in the way your teacher requested?
  • Is your work neat?
  • Is your work complete and does it include heading information (name, date, etc.)
  • Would you be proud for anyone to view this work?

6.2 Judge your informaton problem-solving process (how efficient were you)

Think about the actions that you perform as you are working on this assignment. Did you learn some things that you can use again?

  • What did you learn that you can use again?
  • How will you use the skill(s) again?
  • What did you do well this time?
  • What would you do differently next time?
  • What information sources did you find useful? You may be able to use them again.
  • What information sources did you need but did not have? Be sure to talk to your librarian about getting them.
