Once I choose a web site, I skim the page to see if it has useful information. I use the web evaluation strategy and coaches to help me rate the quality of the website. The rubric reminds me of key features to consider. I decided to rate the sites with a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 meaning the site isn't what I am looking for, and 5 meaning it is perfect for my purpose.
Here are three web evaluations of Dolphin Adventure. Which one do you agree with?
Ratings depend on your purpose and site information, so a rating of 2 could represent your view that information from a tourist business may not be as accurate as information from an educational website.
Ratings depend on your purpose and site information. A rating of 4 could reflect your view that tourist sites are effective when they focus on the human interest element.
For my purpose, I rated this a 4 because I wanted to learn different view points and thought this was a high quality tourist site.
