This area is for an ongoing project by members of the MLA Committee on Information Technology. We are experimenting with a wiki as a way of developing materials to assist in the evaluation of digital work for tenure and promotion. Note : This site has now been taken on by the MLA with other interested parties. That version should be consulted for the most up-to-date version. See MLA Evaluation Wiki (note this link has been updated.

Home > Evaluation > Assessment The IMSA Evaluation Wizard tool offers ten criteria, in the form of questions, to help students assess the credibility of a web resource. The Wizard provides an interactive form to be filled in. • To begin, type (or paste) the URL of the website being evaluated into the box; • Then type the answers to at least three selected evaluation questions in the text box on each page, as directed; • Produce a one page evaluation report by clicking Print Report and printing the page, or • Copy the summary report to a word processing document to create a permanent file (the Wizard does not save a copy) • Review students' Summary pages to gain insights into their ability to evaluate digital information. The guide below may be used to develop a rubric for assessing your students' evaluation abilities. • Although 10 sets of evaluation questions are provided, not all 10 categories are needed every time to inform decision making.
