For each site, fill in this Online Web Site Evaluation Tool


When finished, send both evaluations electronically to your folder on the network server.

For each site, write a detailed essay defending or attacking the integrity of your Web Site.  Be sure to give examples related to the criteria of accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency and coverage.   Proofread, edit and send your essays to your folder on the network server.  Remember, these essays will become part of your writing portfolio, so please do your best!
