I have just finished writing another saga about the the process that goes into evaluating digital resources for a school collection and it occurred to me that assessing resources would benefit from a rubric.
So I made one up. This way TL can grade the digital resources. The marking system emphasises the higher value some criteria have over others.
The sources for my brilliance are below.
