Evaluation of my ICT Database, Spreadsheet and Newsletter

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Josh MckeithFinal Evaluation 05/01/2012 Health and Safety I followed the school rules, and didn?t bring any food/drink into any computer rooms that could be damaging the electrical appliances if any beverages split on it. I didn?t bring my bag or coat into the classroom to reduce chance of someone tripping over, and I made sure that all wires were safely under my desk so that no-one could trip over them. When it was sunny and I was sat facing a computer I made sure that the blinds were closed so that I didn?t get a headache. When I had a double lesson we had a 5minute break between the 2 periods. This was to reduce chances of getting a headache, poor circulation or even backache. I adjusted my chair?s height so that my eyes were at the same level as the screen to reduce eye strain. I watched out for any trailing cables from the mouse or headphones and I used wrist rests to prevent RSI. Security I made sure that I never told anyone my password, or that I didn?t write it down so that no one could alter my work in any way, or delete it. ...read more.


However, some of the fields have being cut of the edge. I could do other reports based on the prices of holidays, etc. Spread sheet Evaluation Layout and Data The labels of my different fields are clear and easily understandable. The data I have included in realistic and I know this because I used a travel website as a guideline ? so that it was easier for me to do mine. And I also went to a travel agency and they showed me they?re website and some of the features I could use in mine. The cell merging was used when starting how many in a group. I have used grids to separate each bit of the spread sheet, so people don?t get confused about where the information is supposed to be. I could have used extra labels such as the type of holiday each is or whether there are disabled facilities. Formulas In my spread sheet, there is automatic recalculation if data changes, as shown in my What If Investigations. This is helpful if there is a sudden change in hotel costs as it automatically recalculates the total cost. ...read more.


I could increase the size of my master-page images so that they are easily viewed, since that is one of the main features of my newsletter. I could use different customized bullet points, since I haven?t added any bullet points in my newsletter. PowerPoint Evaluation Good Points I agree with some points made and, again, I disagree with some. I agree that the colour scheme I have used is appropriate to the target audience, it?s quite sophisticated. I have not used headers and footers ? this would of being easier to give the powerpoint slides specific titles so the reader could easily identify the holiday they want to look at. My pictures are a adequate size, and the positioning is good. I used different fonts and techniques to make my powerpoint more interesting to the reader. Bad Points On the other hand, there are some bad points about my powerpoint:- I didn?t use coloured text, which would of made it more interesting. I haven?t used headers and footers (explained in good points.) Improvements To improve my powerpoint I could:- Put colour on my text, to make the readers more interested. I could put headers and footers so the reader knows straight away what type of holiday this is. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)


It is a fact that the evaluative skills needed to write a successful and concise evaluation are amongst the most difficult a student at any level will encounter. This report contains many valid points and some accurate observations - on the flip side it contains some not particularly good ones with little justification other than the student has to write something about everything in a certain number of words.

A good project or piece of work like this needs to have a well-defined problem with a clear set of objective user requirements or system specifications - however simple - these then underpin the development of the work and also provide a really good structure for the student to complete the harder sections.

Students should read this report as an example so they know what one without the really good structure that requirements give looks like. It appears that the student is floundering in places. This said, the student does have some sensible and relevant ideas.

Overall this is a three star piece of work in places but there are parts where it is less. Its a useful tool for students to look at and compare their own evaluations against.
