Judging Process & Criteria

Entries will be shortlisted by the eLearning Centre. Shortlisted entries will then be judged by a panel of independent judges. The panel of judges will be made up of representatives from MITA, the Faculty of Education, and the eLearning Centre.  It may be necessary for judges to contact participants or arrange a visit to get more information.

Entries will be judged according to the following criteria, all of equal weight:

Originality Is this just another shoot ‘em up, or has the team made a special effort to come up with something that little bit different? Did students draw their own graphics or did they use clipart? Did they record their own music/sound effects? Please note that any non-original elements used must be copyright-free.
Thematic interpretation How well did the team interpret the set theme – Ecology?
Technical quality How well did students use the technology – the Scratch programming language, graphics, sounds etc.?
Fun element Is the production fun?
Authenticity How much of the entry is the students’ own work? Team leaders are free to help their team, but the production must be the students’ own work. The onsite judge will award points for this criterion on the basis of a short interview.
