Abstract

A rubric was created to compare and contrast Web sites based on four criteria: (a) technical aspect, (b) types of content available, (c) authority and, (d) accessibility. The rubric was designed to compare sites to one another. The sites were also grouped into categories: (a) higher education sites, (b) content sites, (c) commercial sites, (d) school districts. The categories were also compared to each other; To compare the sites to each other, a percentage score was given for each of the four criteria. A total percentage score was also given to each site. The score for all of the sites evaluated for each criterion was averaged and used as a category score to compare the categories.
