Rubric for Evaluating WebQuests This rubric will help you pinpoint the ways in which your WebQuest isn't doing everything it could do.

  1. What is Filamentality
  2. Beginners Guide
  3. HotList - The first step in using the power of the Internet for learning is linking to the sites that you find most useful. When you create a hotlist, your learners will be saved hours of aimless surfing.
  4. Scrapbooks -- exporation of a Multimedia Scrapbook. Here learners dig through a collection of Internet sites organized around specific categories such as, photographs, maps, stories, facts, quotations, sound clips, videos, virtual reality tours, etc. Learners use the Scrapbook to find aspects of the broader topic that they feel are important. Example Exploring China
  5. Treasure Hunt -- The basic strategy here is to find Web pages that hold information (text, graphic, sound, video, etc.) that you feel is essential to understanding the given topic. Example Black Histroy Past to Present
  6. Subject Sampler -- Samplers work like "a box of chocolates": you open the box, look over things, think you can see something you'd like, then poke your finger into it. If you like it, you eat it. If you don't, you leave it poked into for someone else to try. Sample Exploring Chinese Culture
  7. WebQuest -- When it's time to go beyond learning facts and to get into grayer, more challenging aspects of the topic, your students are ready to try a WebQuest. Basically, a WebQuest presents student groups with a challenging task, scenario, or problem to solve. Example Look Who's Footing the Bill
