Suggested Evaluation Criteria

The overall objective of an evaluation essay is to provide validation for the quality  ( or lack thereof) concerning  a particular specific item, product, business, service, program, book, video game, movie etc. 

Once you have chosen your topic you will need to provide a critical judgement based on a series of criteria.  It is best to choose a topic that you know well or one that  you will be able to research.
